Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
Today’s CrimeDiva, Amy Boggs, 37, of 892 Alta Road in Springfield, pleaded not guilty to one count of felony theft. [Notice how the record includes the accuser’s full address. Is this meant to embarrass this woman, even before she is convicted of the alleged crime?]
According to records, Ms. Boggs worked at the Red Coach Apartment complex as property manager. Instead of depositing residents rent checks/money orders she altered these payments and deposit the funds into her personal bank accounts.
As in many of my previous posts, this crime was uncovered when Ms. Boggs was on vacation and an employee filled and noticed several tenants were overdue on their rent, which set-off an internal audit. When residents produced their receipts and copies of money orders to prove their rent was paid, Ms. Boggs was questioned and did not return to work. To make matter worst, security video footage from Huntington Bank showed Ms. Boggs depositing and cashing the money orders into her personal accounts. Ms. Boggs is already setting up a reason for a lesser sentence by claiming she was addicted to Percocet that she was taking 30 to 40 pills a day according to what she told one of the detectors.
Ms. Boggs is accused of taking over $10,000 a class 3 felony and could serve up to 60 months in a state prison.
