HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A bookkeeper who allegedly stole about $500,000 from a northern New Jersey flooring company has been indicted on money laundering charges.

The Record (https://bit.ly/1zZCU0F) reports that Monica Arencibia also faces charges of theft by deception, misapplication of entrusted property and forgery in the indictment handed up Wednesday by a Bergen County grand jury.

Prosecutors say the 50-year-old Dumont woman stole the money between September 2010 and June 2014. She allegedly issued company checks to herself in her name, but made it appear that the money was going to pay vendors who supplied the company’s inventory.

Prosecutors say Arencibia used most of the stolen money to gamble at casinos.

Arencibia remains jailed on $250,000 bail. It wasn’t clear Wednesday if she has retained an attorney.
