A Bridgeport man was arrested Saturday, Oct. 5, and charged with first degree larceny for allegedly embezzling more than $1.4 million from his employer, Noble Americas Corporation, an energy retailer firm located in Stamford.
Stamford Police said Jevene Wright, 29, created a fictitious company called "Choice Point Screening" and submitted false invoices for background checks that were submitted to Noble Americas Corporation.
Police said from December 2009 through June 2012, one wire transfer and 97 checks were issued to Choice Point Screening from Noble Americas Corporation. The investigation by the Stamford Police Department’s Property Crimes Unit revealed that the checks were deposited into a Choice Point Screening bank account opened by Jevene Wright. The total value of the funds deposited was $1,441,592.88, police said.
Wright posted a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
