Two employees of an Atlantic City casino restaurant were indicted yesterday afternoon for the theft from their employer of over $100,000, the theft accomplished by issuing payroll checks to non-existent employees over more than a 2- year period, Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain announced today.
On Wednesday, April 30, 2014, as a result of an 18-month investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit, an Atlantic County Grand Jury indicted Jason Spurlock, 35, and Suzanne Adkisson, 35, both formerly of the 800 block of Ocean City, New Jersey, for Theft by Deception and Conspiracy, for the theft of $109,000 from the Il Mulino Restaurant, located in the Taj Mahal Casino, Atlantic City, NJ.
The State alleges that, between 2009 and 2012, while employed by Il Mulino Restaurant, Jason Spurlock, a restaurant manager, and Suzanne Adkisson, a restaurant administrator, conspired to have payroll checks issued to persons no longer employed by the restaurant, and deposited the checks into bank accounts over which they had control.
The Theft by Deception and Conspiracy indictments are 2nd degree crimes, carrying a potential penalty of 5 to 10 years of incarceration in State prison.
Bail has been set for both defendants at $50,000 cash full.
Spurlock and Adkisson have not yet been located and taken into custody.
Anyone with information about the case or the location of the defendants is asked to contact Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit Detective Kimberly McColligan at (609) 909-7762, or Detective Sergeant Janet Larocca at (609) 909-7791.
