NEW BRITAIN, PA — Two janitors from Foundations Behavioral Health recently pled guilty to multiple counts of theft and conspiracy, according to WCAU-TV.
Eugene Child and Herbert Johnson stole more than $650,000 in three years from the non-profit that provides day programs for kids with behavioral health issues and used the money to purchase trips to Walt Disney World Resort, Philadelphia Eagles football tickets and even tattoos and plastic surgery for family members, the story stated.
Beginning in 2005, the duo made fake invoices for janitorial supplies to fake companies that were connected to their own bank accounts, the story noted.
According to the story, Child, the maintenance director, would approve the fake invoices that Johnson, the head of housekeeping, would submit.
Both men, who billed Foundations Behavioral Health hundreds of dollars for items that actually only cost pennies, are free on bail and face more than 40 years in prison if convicted, the story added.
Bucks County Assistant District Attorney Marc Furber said: "They were billing Foundations Behavioral Health for parts that either did not exist or were not delivered. Foundations Behavioral Health treats primarily children and this money was coming out of their mouths."
