HOUSTON – Houston’s America for All, Inc.; Central American Resource Center, 501(c); and Teodoro Aguiluz, doing business as Central American Resource Center, are suing a former employee for alleged embezzlement, recent Harris County District Court records indicate.
The organizations’ lawsuit, which was filed on May 18 in the Harris County 11th District Court, accuse Brenda Yamileth Reyes of bilking the plaintiffs of “several thousand dollars” with her corporate credit card from January 2016 to August 2017.
Court papers additionally allege Reyes pocketed business funds using money orders,
She reportedly admitted wrongdoing after the complainants discovered her “intricate and ongoing” scheme, for which she was asked to repay the money.
The original petition says she was unable to tender repayment for the full amount so the plaintiffs fired her on Sept. 29, 2017.
Reyes’s husband, Dario Quezada, is listed as a co-defendant because he purportedly helped Reyes launch the scheme.
Michael P. Fleming, Nicholas P. Fleming, and Audrey Manito of the law firm Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C. in Houston are representing the complainants.
