A Queens woman was arrested Monday on grand larceny charges after police said she allegedly stole more than $90,000 from an Atlantic Beach company where she worked as a bookkeeper, News 12 Long Island reported on April 1.

Joanne Estrada, 44, was charged with second-degree grand larceny, three counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and first-degree falsifying business records.

Nassau County police said Estrada worked as a bookkeeper at Redgrave Electrical Maintenance at 201 Flamingo Street in Atlantic Beach when she allegedly “fraudulently deposited” 23 company checks into her bank account between July 2013 and last January.

In a news release, police said Estrada allegedly made “false entries” in the company’s business ledger “to conceal the larceny.”

Investigators charged the alleged theft exceeded $90,000.

Authorities said Estrada was arrested at her home Monday evening in Queens and was awaiting arraignment Tuesday afternoon at First District Court in Hempstead.
