Two Women Charged with Stealing Nearly $300k From Local Law Firm

On Monday, in Westminster, two young females were charged with grand theft after stealing more than $285,000 from a Newport Beach law firm. Apparently the two roommates recently used the money to charter a private jet to fly to New York and then party with friends in various hotels in Times Square.

Alexa Johzen Polar, 34, and Robin Antonella Pabello, 33, stole a check worth almost $20,000 dollars back in September or October. They apparently altered the check and changed the value to more than $285,000 and made it payable to Pabello before depositing it into her account.

They have been charged with two counts of forgery, grand theft, and grand theft by embezzlement, plus a sentencing enhancement. If convicted, they each face a possible sentence of six years and four months in state prison.

Under penal code section 487(a), a person who shall feloniously steal, take, carry, lead, or drive away the personal property of another is guilty of theft. A person can be convicted of grand theft if the theft was committed when the money, labor, or real or personal property taken is of a value exceeding nine hundred and fifty dollars ($950) and is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison.
