MEMPHIS – April 25, 2016 - The manager of a local loan business has been convicted of stealing thousands of dollars by making false entries in the books to create false loans and pocket customer payments, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said Monday.
Danyelle McCullough, 43, of Cordova, faces up to four years in prison when she is sentenced on May 21 by Criminal Court Judge W. Mark Ward.
She was the manager and was responsible for the day-to-day operations of a store in the 5000 block of Raleigh LaGrange, one of three locations of AAA Cash Fast. In January of 2010, the store’s owner noticed an unusually large number of bad loans.
An audit showed that the files of 45 former customers, most with new title loans or check advance loans in their names, had missing, altered or suspect documentation in the files.The false entries and thefts occurred between February of 2009 and January of 2010. She was arrested in April of 2010. At trial, company officials established losses of $2,597.50.
The case was handled by Byron Winsett, chief prosecutor of the DA’s Public Corruption and Economics Crime Unit which is responsible for prosecution of cases involving money laundering, fraud and theft from governmental agencies, non-profit organizations and businesses.
Prosecutors and investigators work with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the investigation and prosecution of these offenses.
