A former employee of a lawn care business is accused of stealing more than $4,000 from his boss, according to the Newtown Township Police Department.

Bradley Cohen, 64, who worked for Weed Man in Newtown Township, is alleged to have cashed checks that were made out to his employer and pocketed the money for himself.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for Cohen, who was last known to be staying at a hotel in the Fieldsboro, New Jersey area and was last known to be driving a gray Mini Cooper.

During the course of the investigation, Detectives identified over forty customer payments, totaling $4,083.77, that had been sent to the business between June & July of 2020, and were diverted to someone else when cashed. The investigation revealed that a now-former employee of the business, 64-year-old Bradley Cohen, had stolen the payments, which he deposited into two separate bank accounts in his name without the authorization of the business or the victims.
