New York, NY--A former bookkeeper at New York jewelry company Julie Vos was indicted Monday on charges he stole more than $2.8 million from his employer to pay for elaborate trips, high-end cars, and clothes and luxury goods.

The New York Post reports that Francisco Lopez, 36, of Queens, allegedly made thousands of transfers from company accounts to his personal bank account and credit cards between September 2014 and April 2021, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. He allegedly masked the transactions as corporate expense tallies.

The scheme was uncovered last month after American Express asked Julie Vos about numerous payments made from the jeweler’s accounts to cover charges on Lopez’s personal American Express, according to the report.

Lopez pleaded not guilty to grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property in Manhattan Supreme Court Monday, according to the report. His bail was set at $500,000 cash.
