Lake Arrowhead, CA – A 44-year-old bookkeeper has been arrested and charged with grand theft and embezzlement.
“Biggs was a bookkeeper for a local rental agency,” Captain Rick Ells told ROTWNEWS, “and she is accused of taking cash receipts over the past year in excess of $100,000. Following the investigation she was interviewed and arrested on Monday, April 8.”
Bail has been set at $50,000 with her first court appearance set for 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, via video from the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
ALYCE LETISHA BIGGS
Biggs, former owner of Tisha Biggs & Company in Cedar Glen, was charged on April 24, 2006, with 77 criminal counts for defrauding the state worker’s compensation system, defrauding clients of insurance premiums, embezzling funds from clients, committing workers’ compensation insurance premiums fraud and payroll tax evasion. Biggs eventually plead nolo contendere to a single felony count of fraud to obtain insurance at a reduced rate and a second felony count of grand theft of property over $400. The plea bargain also included a felony conviction for a false, fraudulent or unfiled tax return.
On May 10, 2010, Judge James Dorr granted 60 months of supervised probation for all charges and admonished Biggs to violate no laws. That probation is scheduled to terminate in May 2015, according to court documents.
On January 1, 2011, Judge Annemarie Pace denied the motion to terminate Biggs’s probation on the three felony counts and ordered probation to continue on the same terms and conditions imposed at the time of sentencing.
