More Crime in Sugar Land
Man, what is it about that place--people can't stop doing crimes! Chron crime-beat reporter Dale Lezon has the scoop.
A Sugar Land woman is accused of bilking millions of dollars from the chemical company where she previously worked to buy a luxury home and bankroll trips to Las Vegas, according to federal authorities.
Diana Simon, 49, pleaded not guilty today to one wire fraud, which, authorities say, arose in her alleged scheme to steal more than $3.6 million for Kaneka Texas, a subsidiary of a Japanese chemicals firm with U.S. headquarters in Pasadena. (Dale Lezon, The Houston Chronicle, September 2, 2009)
I'll say one thing for Sugar Land criminals--when they steal, they steal big.
