Kansas Couple Charged with $1.5 Million Theft

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2014

Federal prosecutors say an Augusta couple stole more than $1.5 million from a Wichita company that owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Wichita says 43-year-old Brent Shryock and his 50-year-old ex-wife, Lori Shryock, were indicted Wednesday with four counts of mail fraud.

The indictment alleges the crimes were committed while Brent Shryock was employed as information systems director for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America. He was in charge of purchasing equipment.

Prosecutors say the couple created four fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices. One was LGR Technology, whose initials prosecutors say stood for “Let’s Get Rich.”

Her defense attorney says Lori Shryock has been divorced for at least two years and she will plead not guilty. It’s unclear if Brent Shryock has an attorney.
