On June 6, an executive at a company in Anaheim was arrested on suspicion of embezzlement that reportedly took place over the span of seven or more years. He is now facing several felony charges for the allegations.
Jeffrey Joseph Lenhardt has been the general manager of Foam Plastics and Rubber Products in Anaheim since September of 1990. Twenty-four years later in November of 2014, another worker at the company allegedly found discrepancies that led to suspicion of Lenhardt’s activities when noticing a cash transaction that was not written in the business ledger.
Lenhardt, who reportedly started his fraudulent behavior by offering customers off-the-books purchases of leftover pieces of materials from the shop that would have otherwise been refuse, is accused of accepting cash for the transactions without recording them.
