Camarillo Woman Accused Of Embezzling Hundreds Of Thousands Of Dollars From Oxnard Produce Grower

Posted on Thursday, December 8, 2011 12:27am

A woman who lived in Camarillo, and Redondo Beach is in the Ventura County Jail this morning in lieu of a million dollars bail, after being arrested on charges she embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from an Oxnard produce company.

Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say Paige Jones Hibbits worked as Controller, and Chief Financial Officer for the company, which they didn’t identify.

The investigators say she worked under multiple aliases over the years, and had a long criminal history, including embezzlement and forgery charges stemming from another employer.  Her probation from the 2004 conviction required her to discuss her criminal past with future employers, which they say she failed to do.  They say to give herself more credibility, the 69 year old woman had volunteered with some community organizations.
