A New Haven man is accused of embezzling tens of thousands of dollars from a home health care agency where he worked.
Hamden police arrested 42-year-old Anthony Washington on a first-degree larceny charge Tuesday.
The investigation began in May when the owner of the Hamden-based company told police approximately $68,000 had been embezzled from the business.
According to police, Washington’s girlfriend worked for the company managing payroll and bookkeeping, and at one point deposited $19,000 in stolen funds into Washington’s account.
Washington was also employed by the company as a “companion.” Investigators found that when Washington was incarcerated in prison for 10 months in 2017, he was still receiving direct deposits into the account.
Washington was held on a $10,000 bond and is due to appear in court on Sept. 11.
