Police: Woman stole from Realtors group

Posted October 12, 2009

— A woman has been charged with embezzling from the Rocky Mount Area Association of Realtors, police said Monday.

Janet Cavalier, 47, was charged with three counts of larceny by employee and 13 counts each of forgery and uttering a forged endorsement.

Police began investigating a possible theft in August, when the Realtor group reported that about $265,000 was missing.

Cavalier was arrested Thursday and was released on a $200,000 unsecured bond.

    Unsecured means that she was able to sign her name and promise to appear in court.No money out of pocket.

    The LOVE of money is the root of (almost) all evil.

    She is accused of stealing $250,000 and was released on a $200,000 UNSECURED bond.

    I'm not sure what the unsecured actually involves, but shoot, steal $250,000, bail out for $200,000 and hit the road with $50,000.

    Not a bad day's work.

    I know, makeohane! I was just thinking... how do you spend all that money without people noticing that you are living way beyond your means? It always stuns me that people think they can get away with stealing such large sums without getting caught.

    She shouldn't have any problem coming up with the bond money.
