A husband and wife duo has been arrested and charged with embezzling $4 million from Swisher International, a popular manufacturer of tobacco and blunt products.
They’ll likely need plenty of blunts to help them endure the criminal justice process and potential time behind bars.
Gretchen Camp, 36, was arrested Dec. 3 on a felony charge of grand theft. Her salary was $80,000 and she worked as a tax manager for Swisher, but that reportedly wasn’t enough dough for her and her unemployed hubby, Richard Camp, who also found himself arrested Dec. 13 on charges of organized fraud and money laundering, according to News4Jax.
Prosecutors allege that false invoices were created to assist the couple in allegedly bilking the company out of millions that News4Jax reports was partially spent on fancy classic cars and a $500,000 condo at Fernandina Beach.
The couple could face stiff prison terms if convicted.
Swisher Sweets has for years been a Hip Hop staple. Rapper Gucci Mane recently headlined the company’s annual Atlanta Pack Night Concert.
Gretchen Camp was released from the Duval county jail today on $250,000 bail. Richard Camp’s bail has been set at $250,000 as well.
