The owners of a trucking company in Bonanza are trying to move on after a former bookkeeper embezzled more than $100,000 from their company. Former Halo Ventures Ltd. employee Cara Grace Singer was recently given a six-month conditional sentence after she plead guilty to falsifying employment records.
Halo Ventures is owned by husband and wife Gary Remenyk and Maryellen Coons. In a statement, Coons says she and her husband have been devastated by the whole event.
“We are just trying to put this behind us and move forward. Hopefully, this will never happen to anyone I know. I never even got an apology letter.”
Singer had worked for the company since 2008 but was let go on December 31st, 2017 after the company found evidence of fraud in their books. Back in January, Singer paid the company back $117,000 and then later also agreed to pay $32,409.90.
She will serve her sentence on house arrest and will also have to complete 50 hours of community service.
