Sandy Jenkins, the top accountant for the Texas-based Collins Street Bakery, which specializes in “deluxe fruitcakes,” was arrested this week for allegedly embezzling more than $16 million from the company. According to Dallas-based WFAA, Jenkins spent the stolen money on, among other things, 43 luxury cars and a $3 million jewelry collection. Authorities were no doubt tipped off when they realized a guy who worked for a fruitcake company had 43 cars and a $3 million jewelry collection. [WFAA]
