The business manager of a Brick Township marina has been charged with stealing more than $20,000 from the business by using the marina's checks to cover personal expenses.

Suzanne Kenny, 47, was arrested Jan. 31 after the owner of Lightning Jack's III Marina on Ridge Road called police after being notified of suspicious activity by TDBank, according to Sgt. Henry Drew.

The investigation began when the bank notified the marina owner Jan. 15, Drew said.

Detectives reviewed records at the bank and determined that Kenny had written other checks on the marina's account and used the money for personal means, according to Drew. The amount of money removed from the account was in excess of $20,000.

Kenny was charged with theft by deception and released on a criminal summons after being processed at police headquarters, Drew said.

"The investigation is continuing and additional charges are expected," said Drew.

Anyone who believes that they may have additional information regarding the incident can contact Detective Michael Bevacqua, who is leading the investigation, at 732-262-4612.
