Roger Reynolds bookkeeper charged with embezzlement

Police Friday arrested Roger Reynolds Nursery business manager and bookkeeper Evette Christine Weiler on charges of grand theft and embezzlement in connection with losses at the Menlo Park nursery estimated at more than $100,000, said Sgt. William Dixon of the Menlo Park Police Department.

Roger Reynolds Nursery is at 133 Encinal Ave. in Menlo Park.

Ms. Weiler, 31, is a resident of Fremont and has been employed at the nursery since October 2008, police said. She was booked into the San Mateo County jail.

The case unfolded after a routine audit of the nursery's books in January showed steady declines in account balances, police said.

Auditors then discovered "dozens of checks" written to Ms. Weiler and a Fremont accounting business called "When Every Penny Counts," police said.

Menlo Park Police Office Jeff Keegan conducted an extensive investigation before seeking a $250,000 warrant for Ms. Weiler's arrest, Sgt. Dixon said.

Police are asking anyone with information on the case to call Office Keegan at 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at 330-6395.
