Almost $1Million Allegedly Embezzled From Silverwood Theme Park
Shiver me Timber(s) Terror!
A grand jury in Idaho has indicted two people who worked for Silverwood Theme Park with stealing nearly $1 million from the company.
Christopher Wyatt and Melissa Foeller are each charged with five counts of grand theft.
According to court documents, Foeller stole from the company between 2013 and 2017. She was the accounting manager during that time.
Christopher Wyatt was the chief financial officer and Foeller's supervisor. Court documents say he stole from the company between 2014 and 2017.
Each charge lists a theft of more than $1,000, but prosecutors say the total was nearly $1 million between the two defendants. That takes some Boulder Beach type stones to attempt that kind of egregious siphoning.
Foeller was booked into the jail Thursday and faced a judge Friday afternoon. Wyatt is not currently listed on the inmate roster.
Records detailing the grand jury’s investigation remained under seal Friday, so it was not clear how the theme park was bleeding so much money over so many years, or how the alleged embezzlement was finally discovered. We hear Tremors, but nothing official.
As the Aftershock of the indictments continue to ripple across north Idaho, and Roller Coaster Alley, this Spin Cycle of a story is just now beginning to crest at the top of the run.
Stay tuned, and please keep your arms and feet inside the car at all times.
Thank you and enjoy your ride!
