A Las Vegas woman identified as Daliris Hernandez has been arrested for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from her former employer’s business account last year.
Daliris Hernandez was arrested on Thursday and is being charged with 22 counts of forgery and 18 counts of burglary following an investigation that spanned almost a year.
The accusation was first brought up on July 12, 2022, when an advisor from StarMed Management reported that they had been victims of theft from a former employee, identified as Hernandez.
How Daliris Hernandez stole thousands from former employer
Following the months-long investigation, detectives found that the Daliris Hernandez had 21 unauthorized checks paid out to her name from the company’s business account.
Police listed an almost $11,000 loss between all the issued checks.
The employer told authorities that she had been hired on Jan. 3, 2022, as an office manager, and while she wasn’t authorized as a signer on the business checking account, she still had access to the bank routing and account numbers.
Hernandez was also issued an American Express credit card through the company, which was supposed to be used for office expenses.
On Feb. 24, 2023, detectives sent a letter to Hernandez at her last known address requesting she contact law enforcement by March 10, 2023, for an interview. She did not contact the department and a warrant would later be issued on May 16, 2023, the report says.
Police say she was arrested on Thursday for taking a car without the owner’s consent and was later rebooked for the fraud charges.
