Sheriff's daughter's theft case continued
Prosecutors this week continued the arraignment of Monroe County Sheriff Bob Peryam's daughter, who is accused of third-degree felony theft.
Allison Marie Peryam, 26, was charged on Aug. 28 with grand theft of more than $300 and less than $5,000 for allegedly pocketing cash while working at The Home Depot, according to a Key West police incident report.
Peryam is now scheduled to be arraigned Thursday before circuit Judge Mark Jones, said Assistant State Attorney Carla Matinata. The arraignment was continued so prosecutors could meet with officials from The Hope Depot, Matinata said.
Peryam was released from Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island on Aug. 29 after posting $500 bail, according to jail records.
She is accused of printing copies of customers' receipts after their purchases, then conducting return transactions with the same receipts before pocketing the money, according to the report.
