Tyler Wright allegedly defrauded $1.5 million by local bookkeeper
Tyler Wright and her family have allegedly been defrauded of over a million dollars by a local bookkeeper on the NSW South Coast.
Shane Maree Hatton, 53, was arrested at a home in Vincentia on Wednesday after a lengthy police investigation, and charged with defrauding clients of $1.5 million over the last decade.
NSW Police said the State Crime Command’s Financial Crime Squad established Strike Force Strathwallen to investigate reports a family business had been defrauded by a woman employed to manage the company’s finances.
After Ms Hatton’s arrest a search warrant was issued, and police officers seized electronic devices and documents.
Police said she had been charged with 749 counts of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception and is due before Nowra Local Court on April 26.
