Authorities say marina employee stole $243,000

Jody Lovejoy, a longtime employee of Fish Tale Marina in Fort Myers Beach, Fla., was charged with grand theft and fraud for allegedly embezzling more than $243,000 from the owners of the marina.

Marina owner Alva Durrett said Lovejoy, 51, worked there for 23 years and was a good friend, according to a news report on News-Press.com. So it came as a shock, Durrett said, when she discovered irregularities in the marina's books.

Lovejoy allegedly wrote checks to herself for almost eight years, from April 30, 2003, to Jan. 14, 2010.
