Jessica Addison, 39, Kaleigh Kalb, 21, and Isabella Valentine, 21, have been charged with theft and conspiracy to commit theft.
The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit began an investigation into the suspected employee theft of payroll funds from the Atlantic Health System facility in Morris Plains in November 2021.
The investigation revealed that Addison, a former employee of the company, had created false employee profiles for Kalb and Valentine and submitted fabricated timecards for them, enabling them to receive weekly payroll distributions that they shared with Addison.
As a result, weekly payroll distributions totaling approximately $71,157 were received and shared among the women. The Defendants Jessica Addison, Kaleigh Kalb, and Isabella Valentine were each charged with Theft, Third Degree; and Conspiracy to Commit Theft, Third Degree.
All three women have been released on summons complaints and are due to appear in court. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office has urged anyone with information related to the investigation to call its Financial Crimes Unit at 973-285-6200.
