Former Scituate restaurant manager charged with allegedly stealing $200,000 from owners – Boston 25 News

The former manager of a Scituate restaurant was charged with theft and tax evasion in Plymouth County District Court on Friday.

Maureen Graham, 55, from Plymouth allegedly stole $200,000 while she was general manager of The Voyage restaurant in the village of Humarock.

According to a statement from the Plymouth County Attorney’s Office, a seven-month investigation revealed that Graham would gamble using the restaurants’ Keno machine and use the restaurant’s money to hide his losses.

Her role as general manager gave her unlimited access to Keno tickets and restaurant funds. Starting in 2019 and over an 18-month period, Graham is accused of stealing around $200,000 from restaurant bank accounts to cover her gambling losses. The Plymouth resident allegedly transferred funds to various restaurant bank accounts to hide deficits.

The investigation also found that Graham forged checks in the name of his employer and falsified tax returns in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Graham faces four counts of theft over $1,200, two counts of forgery and three counts of tax evasion. Graham will face trial on the charges in Plymouth Superior Court at a later date.
