Fanwood woman charged with theft and forgery

Jennifer Grambor

An extensive investigation has led to the arrest of a Fanwood woman on charges of theft and forgery, Union County Prosecutor William A. Daniel announced today. The criminal complaint comes as a result of a year-long investigation led by Detective Alex Lopez of the Union County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Prosecutions Unit. Jennifer Grambor, 50, was charged with three counts of second-degree theft and one count of third-degree forgery.

In August 2021, a local pharmaceutical company made a report to the Union County Prosecutor’s Office that its former Human Resources/Payroll Manager had stolen a large amount of company funds. More specifically, the company’s Forensic Accountant discovered that, between 2016 and 2021, Jennifer Grambor stole in excess of $900,000 through various unlawful means.

After a thorough and exhaustive investigation, Detective Lopez concluded that Grambor, as payroll manager, had exclusive access to company finances and used her position to unlawfully issue payroll checks to herself and family members.

Grambor was arrested without incident and processed at the Union County Sheriff’s Office. Her first court appearance is scheduled to take place on August 31, 2022.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with further information about this or similar incidents involving Jennifer Grambor is being urged to contact Union County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Alex Lopez at 908-527-4933.

Convictions on charges of this nature are commonly punishable by sentences of up to 10 years in state prison.

These criminal charges are mere accusations. Each defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
