According to the authorities, a woman from Monmouth County has been charged with stealing more than $146,000 from her previous place of employment.
Jodi L. Vanaman, age 47, from Neptune Township, was arrested and charged with Theft by Unlawful Taking in the second degree.
Between the years of 2016 and 2021, Vanaman was employed by All Coast Service, a heating and air conditioning company with headquarters in Neptune City, and served in the capacity of office manager there.
