There are some nice perks about living in Florida (even northern Florida) as you are in easy driving distance to a number of the best cruise hubs in the USA. But one bookkeeper from the Suwannee County area took things to the extreme.

The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office on their Facebook page shared that “Ashley Nicole Dalton, 36, from Branford” Florida, over a period of six years, embezzled some 1.6 Million and spent the money on all kinds of things, including Carnival cruises and airline tickets!

Yikes!

How did she do it? The sheriff’s office goes on to share that she “illicitly obtained a credit card under the business’s name without authorization.”

Now I am all for, and strongly encourage Frequent Floaters, to get business cards but not THAT way for crying out loud.

When arrested, the lady denied any of the spending, including the cruising, was not appropriate and that the owner of the business knew all about it. Well she has been fired now so I don’t think that is going to float.

Once again, looking at the Facebook post, we learn that “she faces charges of Grand Theft and Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card. Her bond has been set at $1,010,000, pending a Nebbia hearing, during which she must substantiate the legitimacy of her assets for bail.”

On the plus side, her jail cell is likely much like an interior cabin on a cruise ship, and she gets free meals every day! – René
