According to police, Kevin Miezejeski, 54, of Essex, Connecticut, embezzled an estimated $220,000 from Naturally Green Lawn Care LLC, a North Haven, Connecticut lawn care company in which he was part owner.

He was charged on a warrant with first-degree larceny following an investigation that began in July when Miezejeski reported that money was allegedly being embezzled from his business.

Miezejeski was “taking payments for services directly, and manipulating the business’ computer system to cover the crime up,” police said in a release.

The majority owner of Naturally Green Lawn Care LLC worked with detectives, witnesses, and accountants to reveal that Miezejeski was responsible for the loss, police said.

Miezejeski is free on a $150,000 bond and is due at Meriden Superior Court at the end of the month.
