Blythe woman charged in $80,000 embezzlement

A Blythe woman was charged with embezzling a large sum of money from Fisher Ranch after an investigation was conducted by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Abby Amillano, 43, was served an arrest warrant on Oct. 1 and charged with embezzlement and grand theft. She was booked into the Blythe Jail on the above charges.

The investigation began on May 4, when a representative for Fisher Ranch Corporation contacted the Riverside County Sheriff's Department to report an embezzlement and grand theft that had occurred there. Fisher Ranch, a large, local farming company, believed Amillano, a former employee, had embezzled large amounts of money from them over the past years. The Fisher Ranch representative suspected the theft of money exceeded $80,000 dollars.

According to Fisher Ranch, Amillano had been entrusted with accounts receivables, hay inventories and sales deposits, as well as deposits generated by numerous rental properties owned and managed by Fisher Ranch Corporation. Amillano allegedly skimmed money from these types of deposits over a six-year period.

After conducting an extensive investigation into the alleged embezzlement scheme, Sheriff investigators were able to process hundreds of documents, receipts, and banking statements. As a result of their lengthy investigation, Sheriff investigators determined Amillano had indeed embezzled a large amount of money from Fisher Ranch Corporation over a number of years. Investigators requested an arrest warrant be issued for Amillano for embezzlement and grand theft.

Anyone with further information regarding this theft investigation is encouraged to contact the Colorado River Station at (760) 921-7900.

I don't agree with what she did, Stealing from your boss or your job is not worth loosing your job and going to jail. I work for the prison and i see to many people loose there jobs. for bringing stuff into the inmates like drugs and phone, etc.

I am not from Blythe, (live in Cibola) but have worked here for over 15 years. I am so sorry to hear that someone would steal, let alone from such a wonderful organization and family as the Fishers. I am not sure if I qualify, but I would love to apply for this womans job, I am honest and well skilled. ~ ') My best to the Fisher family, you are a wonderful part of Blythe, and the community.

This is not the first or the last person to go down this path. I suggest all business to check their books. You will be surprised with what you will find. Not 80,0000 dollars missing. Maybe 3 to 5 dollars a day. Over a month you have 90 to 100 plus dollars missing. Need that party money to go to that new sports bar. Saving for breast implants, a new pair of shoes. Need money to spend at the Casino out of town and with gas prices so high. IN other words everyone is short on money when it comes to paying the bills and buying food. If not money it's merchandise. Will everyone tear her down like they did that other woman that embezzled from that car dealership? But Why put in the Bank? Why?
