A former employee of Treehouse Realty Group, a property management firm, has been sentenced to 6 ½ years in prison for embezzling more than $50,000 from the company, according to the Arizona Attorney General.

Lynna Swann of Tempe, Arizona,  was sentenced to 6 ½ years in prison for embezzling $58,158.13 from her property management employer, according to a release from the attorney general. She was also sentenced to three years probation with white collar terms after she is released from prison.

Treehouse Realty is a property management group that receives multiple checks and money orders as payment from their clients. A company audit found that Swann, 40, was stealing those money orders and checks.

Swann used a thick sharpie to write her name on the money orders and then deposited the money orders into her account.

Tempe Police identified approximately 100 money orders that were deposited into Swann’s account that were made out to Treehouse Realty. 

Swann had $10,000 in checks and money orders in her purse when confronted by her employer, according to the release from the attorney general.

Swann pleaded guilty to Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices and Theft.

At the time of this offense, Swann was on probation for stealing from her previous employer, according to the attorney general's release.
