ST. LOUIS –
The president of Custom Janitorial Services and Supplies is facing federal charges alleging he embezzled nearly $1 million.
The St. Louis Business Journal reports that 54-year-old Herman Schamber of St. Louis worked out of the main Alexandria, Va. office of National Janitorial Services Inc. and also owned and operated the another company, Custom Janitorial Services, out of the East Rutherford, N.J. area. The Business Journal explains:
"The indictment alleges that Schamber exploited his position by listing his company CJSS in the NJSI database and accounting system as an approved vendor. Schamber then created false invoices to NJSI on behalf of CJSS for services and supplies, according to the indictment."
