Woman Sentenced for Stealing Checks

A southern New Jersey woman who diverted hundreds of checks meant for her employer is now headed to state prison.

Ocean County prosecutors say 43-year-old Victoria Geremonte of Brick received a 5-year sentence Friday and was ordered to pay $393,162 in restitution. She had pleaded guilty to theft charges.

Prosecutors say Geremonte diverted 381 checks payable to her employer, a Lakewood-based oil tank removal company, for nearly four years. They say the checks were moved into an account Geremonte owned and controlled, but have not said what she did with the funds.

Geremonte was arrested in October 2012 after the theft was discovered.
