An audit of sales transactions and company review of records has led to the
arrest of a Waterbury man that police said stole more than $20,000 from Best
Cleaners in Berlin over the course of a one-year period while he was employed
with the company.
Christiane Parra, of 91 Royal Oak Drive in Waterbury, turned himself into
police last week on charges of first-degree larceny and first-degree computer
crimes. He was arraigned in New Britain Superior Court and was released after
posting a $2,500 bond, according to the state Department of Justice.
“(The crime) occurred over
a period of approximately a year and he was embezzling from his employer using
the company’s computer system to facilitate the larceny, loss was over
$20,000,” said Deputy Chief John Klett.
Klett said after the company detected the issue, Parra was terminated and the
information was passed along to the Berlin Police Department. The case is now
closed, police said.
