Woman Who Allegedly Embezzled $80,000 from St. C. Condos and Left Island Brought Back to USVI to Face Charges

Crime / News / Virgin Islands / November 5, 2019

ST. CROIX — Dawn Marie Aley-Lutek was brought back to the U.S. Virgin Islands on October 30 to face charges that she embezzled $80,000 when she was employed as a bookkeeper at St. C Condos, according to former V.I.P.D. Public Information Office Glen Dratte.

According to Mr. Dratte, on April 7, 2017, the management for St. C. Condos where Ms. Aley-Lutek was employed as a bookkeeper, discovered that she embezzled approximately $80,000 between March of 2016 to March of 2017, and placed the funds into an account she shared with her boyfriend at First Bank. When contacted by management about the questionable transactions, Ms. Aley-Lutek did not return to work and had since left the territory.

According to police, an investigation was conducted by members of the V.I.P.D.’s Economic Crime Unit. Judge Jessica Gallivan found probable cause following the investigation and issued an arrest warrant for Ms. Aley-Lutek for embezzlement by clerk, agents, and employees and grand larceny.

On October 19, Ms. Aley-Lutek was detained at her residence by the Calvert County Police in Lusby Maryland. Once detained, she waived extradition and was brought back to the USVI on October 30 by detectives from the Economic Crime Unit and the Criminal Investigation Bureau. She was then arrested for embezzlement by clerk, agents, and employees, and grand larceny.

Unable to post bail, Ms. Aley-Lutek was remanded to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections. Her advisement hearing was Monday, according to police.
