Florida office manager admits cheating insurers — has previous record

marissa-minor

PORT ST. LUCIE — A former dental office manager did a different type of filling: diverting insurance payments to her private bank accounts, according to an arrest affidavit.

An estimated $20,000 illegally ended up in the accounts of Marissa Minor, 31, of Stuart, the affidavit states. She is charged with fraud, possession of forged documents and larceny and is in the St. Lucie County Jail in lieu of $55,000 bail.

She was arrested Tuesday following an investigation that began last year when someone took over her job at Gentle Breeze Dental on Port St. Lucie Boulevard. In December, the new office manager told police she discovered discrepancies in patient insurance payments received while Minor was employed there, from March to November.

After police got involved, they found that checks were deposited in Minor’s accounts at PNC Bank and at JP Morgan Chase Bank. Signatures were forged. Investigators got bank records for the prior 10 months and found more. A total of 30 checks had been taken, the affidavit states.

Bank surveillance videos showed the checks being deposited by a person matching Minor’s appearance. That person drove away in a 2013 Nissan Altima belonging to Minor, the affidavit states.
