Fort Lee Man Charged With Theft by Deception

Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced the arrest of Kevin K. Shon, 60, of Fort Lee on a charge of Theft By Deception.

According to police, the arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Robert Anzilotti.

Police say say that in December 2018, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit received information that Shon was suspected of stealing money from his business partner and their Bergen County-based corporation.

Officials say that during the course of the investigation, it was determined that Shon withdrew money from the corporate bank account without proper authorization and used it for his personal benefit.

Shon wrote numerous checks to himself, as well as checks to two companies with which he was directly involved. Those companies did not provide any services to Shon and his partner’s company.

According to reports, as a result of the investigation, Shon was arrested on May 23 in Fort Lee and charged with one count of Theft By Deception with the amount involved being greater than $75,000, a 2nd-degree crime.

Shon is scheduled for a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on Wednesday, June 9 at 8:30 a.m.
