Former Clyde’s Employee Pleads Guilty to Embezzlement

Former Clyde's Restaurant Group corporate controller Nancy Preston faces 20 years in prison after pleading guilty yesterday to embezzling $647,547.

According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, the theft spanned a decade, from 2001 to 2011. Preston diverted money from Clyde's to pay her personal credit card. She also used the company's corporate credit cards to pay for personal expenses and used a Clyde's vendor to obtain goods for her personal use. To cover the embezzlement, Preston asked a vendor to alter invoices, faked emails, and miscategorized expenses. She also altered her corporate credit card statement when she found out about a company audit.

He sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 12.

    Hey, US Attorney's Office when are you indicting Jim "Taxi Cash" "AIDS Grift" Graham? Compared to Taxi Cash's hauls over the years 650K is chump change! He makes "Fully Loaded" and Thomas look like Boy Scouts, idiot Boy Scouts but Boy Scouts nonetheless.
