(report on incident from NJ.com – Mar 28, 2017)

A bookkeeper for a borough company has been arrested and charged with stealing more than $700,000 from the firm.

Robert Keith, 46, of West Orange, was charged with credit card theft, money laundering, forgery, theft by unlawful taking and unlawful use of a credit card, according to a statement from the county prosecutor’s office.

While working as a bookkeeper for RupCoe Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, in South Plainfield, Keith allegedly stole $715,000 from the company “through forged checks and credit card purchases within a two-year period,” according to a statement from the South Plainfield Police Department.

Authorities were alerted after officials from the company learned of the missing funds and contacted police.

Keith also served as a minister at a house of worship, though the name and location of the religious institution were not released by authorities. Though Keith was not a licensed certified public accountant, he allegedly had “sought to add legitimacy to his bookkeeping services by describing himself as a religious leader,” according to the prosecutor’s office.

He was arrested on Saturday, according to officials, who noted that he was also wanted for a probation violation from Essex County.
