ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Four people are charged with stealing $15,000 in a payroll forgery scheme at a nursing assistance company.

29 year old Chandra Thomas, the payroll manager, and 25 year old Hjuana Florence, the office coordinator, are accused of issuing phony payroll checks from J.R. Loving Care.

 

They're charged with ten counts of computer forgery and computer theft each and may face more charges.

Police say 39-year old Cheryl Jones and 19-year old Vanessa Simpkins, are two of the fake employees.

They are charged with computer theft party to a crime.  More arrests are expected.

Police say they added five or six people to the payroll five years ago, even though they didn't work there.

Investigators say when the bogus employees were issued paychecks, they cashed them, kept some of the money, but gave most of it to Thomas and Florence.
