July 13, 2019
An omnibus hearing that had been scheduled this past Monday at 1 p.m. at the Roseau County Courthouse has now been rescheduled for a plea hearing on Monday, August 12, at 10 a.m.
In the State of Minnesota vs. Jennifer Daria Slukynsky, DOB: 02/02/1976, of Warroad, she is charged with three counts of theft by swindle.
Count I has a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment and/or $100,000 fine.
Counts II and III each carry maximum sentences of 10 years imprisonment and/or $20,000 fines.
According to the Statement of Probable Cause, filed by Complainant Jeff Nelson with the Roseau County Sheriff's Department:
That on 12/11/2018 it was reported by Streiff Sporting Goods owners that an employee by the name of Jennifer Daria Slukynsky, DOB: 02/02/1976, the Defendant herein, had been selling store merchandise through her personal Paypal and Ebay accounts since July of 2017. Streiff Sporting Goods had employed a loss prevention consultant (Dan Smith) who was able to establish that the Defendant had been selling items and shipping them through Streiff Sporting Goods for her own personal gain.
Investigator Jeff Nelson of the Roseau County Sheriff's Department met with the loss prevention consultant (Dan Smith) and Conway and Nick Marvin (owners) at Streiff's Sporting Goods on this date and was provided with reports and records accumulated by Dan Smith. The records included a partially handwritten and signed statement from the Defendant that she had sold just over $100,000.00 of items which belonged to Streiff's Sporting Goods without their permission or consent to do so and for her own personal profit...
The total value of items stolen, including shipping costs, was $109,255.89 broken down as follows: $29,254.78 between July 15, 2017 and December 31, 2017; $31,619.23 between January 3, 2018 and June 29, 2018; $48,381.88 between July 2, 2018 and December 11, 2018.
In a phone interview last Saturday morning, Roseau County Sheriff Steve Gust was asked if the defendant, Jennifer Slukynsky, had been arrested or booked into the Roseau County Detention Center.
"No, not yet. It's one of those things that happened a while back and they (Streiff's owners) went through the process of interviewing her," he said.
So, you don't book somebody who's allegedly stolen $100,000 from a business?
"I think part of the deal was the gal who did it is related to the owners. She's paid a lot of stuff back already, but she still owes them some money," he said. "It's not unusual to have a theft and not book anyone until the day of sentencing. She will get fingerprinted at that point."
