PORT ST. LUCIE -- Port St. Lucie Police arrested a new bride on fraud and theft charges after she used her company's credit cards to fund the nearly $50,000 Hard Rock Café Wedding.

On Nov. 25, Port St. Lucie Police Detectives arrested Lareese Michelle Darville on fraud and grand theft charges.

The investigation began when one of the owners of Partners III Pawn Shop reported to police that he received late notices on credit cards belonging to the business that had not been used in two years. The victim also discovered that one of the cards were over drawn by about $10,000.00

As police detectives began their probe into the case, they quickly discovered that Ms. Darville, an employee responsible for the finances of the business, had been using the credit cards without the permission of the owner. Ms. Darville used the credit cards 14 times beginning in September, 2012.

During the investigation police learned that Ms. Darville had the borrowing limits of the cards increased and used the credit cards to fund her June 2013 wedding, which was held at the Seminole Hard Rock Café. The total amount taken to fund the wedding was nearly $50,000.00.

Upon completion of the investigation Ms. Darville was arrested and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
