HOUSTON – A former manager at Goodwill, the non-profit organization, was arrested and charged with theft, Friday.
Cheryl Jananne Jennings, fifty eight, had been needed by the Houston Police Department since October after being formally accused of stealing almost $one hundred,000.
“She was establishing some bogus false staff to obtain their payroll,” personal investigator, Hunter Cox, stated.
Cox spent months tracking Jennings, who proved to be elusive, the seasoned personal investigator stated.
Jennings was arrested outdoors an condo in La Porte by the Houston Police Division’s Major Offenders squad.
The crimes are alleged to have occurred between December 2014 and August 2016.
A charging doc states that Jennings siphoned $ninety three,812.25 by depositing the paychecks into her personal checking account.
Jennings beforehand had an workplace at the Goodwill retailer at 2411 Bay Space Blvd.
Terri Paris, a representative for Goodwill Industries of Houston, sent the next assertion relating to the arrest.
“We are very happy that Ms. Jennings has been arrested, and that this case can now transfer forward.
“Financial controls in place on the time of this incident allowed us to detect irregularities throughout an inner audit. We reported the state of affairs to regulation enforcement and have been working with authorities intently throughout the investigation.
“Any theft dedicated towards a non-revenue is a very despicable crime. The dollars lost usually are not obtainable to fund packages that help individuals. Program members, donors, and organizations are all adversely affected. We hope that the prosecution of this case can be a deterrent that helps everyone locally.”
