Police: Employee Bilked $42,758 in Bogus Expenses

Officers arrested a Derby man for first-degree larceny, credit card theft and receipt of goods by illegal use of a credit card totaling $42,758.77 from his Westport employer, police said today.

Jaiman Shah, 35, turned himself in on an active warrant at Police Headquarters on Tuesday following an extensive investigation dating back to March 2019. That was when his former employer said that Shah, through various means, had used company funds to make personal purchases. According to the arrest report, Shah made additional purchases he had attempted to pass as legitimate work-related work expenses.

“Additionally, it was alleged that Shah had submitted reimbursement invoices for training classes that he did not attend,” the arrest report said. “It is alleged that the total amount of misappropriated funds by Shah in these incidents is $42,758.77.”

Shah was released after posting a $75,000 court set bond, and he is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Friday, March 6.
