A former employee has been arrested and charged with embezzling more than $1.3 million from Allstate Glass in Holbrook, Mass.
According to the Holbrook Police Department, Ashley Sumner, 36, was charged with larceny over $1,200 (felony); improper use of a credit card over $1,200 (felony, two counts); identity fraud (misdemeanor, four counts); and money laundering (felony).
Police began an investigation into Sumner in March after it was reported by Allstate Glass that she had been suspected of stealing $50,000. Sumner had been an employee of Allstate Glass from 2020 until her resignation in February 2023. In her role, she had access to the company’s finances.
Over the course of a months-long investigation, police discovered that Sumner allegedly made multiple fraudulent credit card charges, direct deposits and wire transfers. It was found that Sumner allegedly embezzled a total of more than $1.3 million from the company.
Sumner was arrested and arraigned last week in Quincy District Court. The court set a $100,000 cash bail and ordered the defendant to return on Aug. 30.
