STAMFORD, Conn. — A Bridgeport man suspected of embezzling more than $1.4 million from a Stamford energy retailing firm was arrested Friday, a news release from the Stamford Police Department said.
Jevene Wright, 29, created a fictitious company named “Choice Point Screening” and submitted false invoices for background checks to Noble Americas Corporation, the release said. The company then sent 97 checks and one wire transfer into a bank account set up by Wright from December 2009 to June 2012, the release said.
Wright was charged with first-degree larceny and was released after posting a $25,000 bond, the release said.
The arrest was made by the department’s Property Crime Unit.
