Charlotte Man Charged with Embezzling over 90,000

John Edward Dee
John Edward Dee, former CFO of the Harris Land Company, has been arrested and charged with embezzling $90,600 in additional salary.  He was arrested on April 26, 2011.

CMPD says an outside accountant was doing an audit on Harris Land Company in February and found that Dee had been receiving  unauthorized monies over the past two years. Dee managed the company's payroll and wrote unauthorized checks.

The CMPD Financial Crimes Unit seized several bank documents from John Dee and Dee admitted embezzling some of the money.  In the past two years, Dee bought a $500,000 home in Charlotte as well as another piece of property.
