    This woman had a good job, and wasted it all on a mere $5000.00 compared to a lifetime job that over time would’ve paid so much more…what an idiotic thing to do…

    The reason she bailed out in less than 24 hours is called a bail bondsman and a family willing to help with $5000 bond

    Why would someone do this to such a nice man as Bob Tyler. If I was in the market for a Toyota I would not hesitate shopping at his dealership.

    Why wasn’t she happy to have a good job? What are people thinking when they steal from where they work?

    Charlotte – the reason why her bond is so high, is due to the total number of charges she is facing. All together she was arrested on 26 different charges, Each charge has a bond assigned. It appears, that these bonds on each charge are at the low end of the range based on her charges.

    1 count Grand Theft under $5,000.
    1 count of Fraud/swindle
    1 count of Misrepresentation to commit theft
    5 counts of Forgery
    18 counts of Dealing in Stolen Property

    Additionally, a $15,000 bond to some people may as well be a million dollar bond if they dont have the resources to bond out. This lady was able to bond out of jail in less than 12 hours.

    You gave up your freedom for five thousand dollars….the same five thousand dollars you would have earned as an employee.

    WOW! $71,000 bond for embezzlement, but yet a man can beat up his girlfriend, attempt to kill her and he gets a $15,000 bond. I am so confused.
