Police say Roca also fraudulently billed for services at the center’s affiliated locations and also billed insurance companies while pocketing the payments.

The alleged crime netted more than $12,395.

Rosa reportedly admitted during police interrogation that she did steal from the company, but insists she stole no more than $1,500.

Roca has been charged with five counts of Grand Theft and one count of Organized Scheme to Defraud
