Former Elk Grove man accused of embezzling $2.5 million

A former Elk Grove man has been charged with mail fraud related to embezzlement from his former employer.

A federal grand jury today returned a 20-count indictment against Vincent J. Doyle, 53. Doyle now lives in Syracuse, Ind., according to a federal Department of Justice news release.

According to the indictment, Doyle was the chief financial officer for a civil engineering firm in Sacramento and El Dorado counties. From 2001 until he retired from the firm in 2009, he allegedly used his position to write unauthorized checks form the firm's bank accounts that totaled at least $2.5 million.

To conceal his alleged fraud, Doyle often entered false payee information into the firm's checkbook register and opened a post office box to receive mail associated with the fraud, according to court documents.

The case resulted from an investigation by the FBI.
