Woman goes shopping using employer’s money

  • PDF

A 36-year-old female employee is now facing charges of theft of property as a second-degree felony, forgery, and theft of mislaid property after taking her employer’s blank check, making the check out to herself, and cashing it to pay her bills and go on a shopping spree.

According to Boujun “Howard” Jou, he left two pre-signed blank business checks on top of the counter of his business in Agaton on July 3.

Jou told police that when he returned the same day, he noticed one of the checks he put beside his cash register was missing. After reviewing his store’s surveillance footage, he saw that one of his employees, Alisa Tatasy Curley, took one of the checks. When Jou confronted the defendant with what he saw on surveillance video, Curley confessed that she had taken the blank check but she promised to return it.

The defendant, however, never returned the check, prompting the employer to forward his complaint to the police. Jou later discovered that Curley made the check out to herself and cashed it in the amount of $2,850.

On July 5, police interviewed the defendant who waived her Miranda Rights and admitted to taking the check and cashing it. Curley said she used the money to reconnect her electricity, pay her bills, and go on a $1,000 shopping spree at the Guam Premier Outlets in Tamuning.
