Aussie Lesbian Couple Jailed After Million Dollar Jewelry Chain Heist

A pair of former lesbian lovers have been caught and sentenced to jail after staging an elaborate heist that siphoned $1.4 million from a chain of jewelry stores, where one of the women worked as an accountant, over the course of three years.

According to Edge on the Net:

Luisa Touli convinced former girlfriend Anna Rajkowski into committing fraud by manipulating the numbers in the books for Kings Jewelers, a chain of stores where Rajkowski had worked since 1998.

Rajkowski would then transfer money from the jewelry stores into Touli’s account and the account of Touli’s current girlfriend, 23-year-old Faagata Uelese.

From 2007 to 2009, Rajkowski transferred a total of $39, 451 into her own account, $234, 633 into Uelese’s, and $1. 2 million to Touli.

Prosecutor Ken Spinaze claims the heists, which resulted in King Jewelers closing six of its stores and laying off 60 employees, were used to feed Touli’s drinking and gambling habits.

Both Touli and Uelese pleaded guilty on November 19, with the latter ordered to serve a two-year suspended sentence and two-and-a-half years’ probation. Touli didn’t get off so easy; she was sentenced to nine years in jail. As for Rajkowski, she’s set to go on trial on Feb. 18.

    as bad and immoral as this is, it doesn’t even make any sense. why would the woman who pulled off the embezzlement send more money to the ex and the new girlfriend than to herself? with the new girlfriend getting the most. what could have induced her to do this in the first place.
