Brownsville: The Great Fajita Caper

Employee of the county juvenile justice department was receiving county funded shipments of fajitas and rerouting them to his personal customers.

One day he was off work when the delivery driver showed up and called the kitchen about 800 lbs of fajitas. The kitchen said they don't serve fajitas. The driver said he had been delivering fajitas for nine years...

Over $1M worth. Not a typo. More than one million dollars.

At the cost of meat now a days, that wouldn't be hard to imagine.
I can remember when skirt steak was a throw away. Now it seems its one of the more expensive cuts.

The first rule of committing fraud or theft from your employer is "don't take time off". In fact, that is one of the red flags auditors look for when identifying control weaknesses / potential fraud. Anyone with access to cash or inventory who never takes vacation or sick days.

Looks like this guy got just a little too complacent.

They always seem to get you when you take vacation. I worked for a company back in the late '70s - early '80s that had an accounts payable manager that was able to funnel money into his own company he had set up. They caught him when he took some seldom taken vacation. He and his wife did some well deserved time in Huntsville. :cup:
