A Voorhees couple are accused of stealing $323,000 in audiovisual equipment from the Moorestown company where they worked.
The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said Gustavo Gomez, 42, and Donna Gomez, 59, are facing charges that include theft by deception, computer criminal activity, and conspiracy to commit theft by deception.
The husband and wife are accused of stealing valuable equipment over an eight-year period and selling it through an online auction site.
The extent of the thefts was "staggering," Starlite Productions founder Dean Danowitz told the Camden Courier-Post.
"The breach of trust which we placed in them was the most disappointing to me, personally as well as our team of 50-plus employees," he told the newspaper. "We are truly saddened for Gus and Donna that they felt the need to resort to crime."
Donna Gomez was the general manager and Gustavo Gomez was an audiovisual inventory control manager, officials said.
The probe began when the company noticed that paperwork for an equipment purchase had been manipulated to hide the theft of the item, prosecutors said. The business then discovered that its own items and items ordered for customers were being sold online at discounted prices.
Prosecutors allege that the couple modified documents for eight years to conceal their thefts.
Between 2006 and 2014, authorities said, they conducted 107 online auctions for stolen items, which had a total value of $322,968.
The two were taken into custody this week and were released after posting $50,000 bail each.
