Ashleigh Herring (Hamden Police)

HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) -- A Waterbury woman is facing charges after she allegedly paid herself thousands of dollars for hours she did not work.

In May of last year, Hamden police began investigating an embezzlement complaint at Best Choice Home Health Care.

An investigation revealed that former employee Ashleigh Herring stole approximately $68,000 from the business.

She was the payroll supervisor, and reportedly paid herself that money via direct deposit. She also fraudulently deposited thousands of dollars into her boyfriend’s bank account.

She was arrested and charged with first-degree larceny and was held on a $100,000 bond.

She’s expected to appear in court on Sept. 23.

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by the mix of African-Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature of these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self-improvement, hard work and a self-reliant nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.
