A Prairieville couple faces charges after allegedly stealing money from an apartment complex they managed.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office report that Monica Berzas, 43, and her husband Michael, 44, were arrested as a result of a 2014 theft investigation.

The suspects were responsible for collecting rent from residents of an apartment complex they managed. The APSO says that the couple was allegedly giving false receipts to renters while telling the owner of the complex that renters were late on their payments.

The owner confronted the renters, only to learn that every one of them had a receipt advising that they paid on time.

Michael and Monica Berzas were arrested on felony theft. Monica’s bond was set at $20,000, while Michael’s bond was set at $15,000.
