  BARNEGAT – A woman working for a marina in town stole $108,415 and will have to pay it back, officials said.

  Lisa Dowd, 52, of Barnegat, will also serve three years in prison.

  The thefts took place between January of 2018 and December of 2021, police said. She forged checks on marina bank accounts and made them payable to herself. Some of them were used to pay for her utilities and personal credit card bill.

  Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer acknowledged the efforts of Senior Assistant Prosecutor Christopher Heisler who handled the case on behalf of the State, as well as the Barnegat Township Police Department Detective Bureau for their efforts in connection with this investigation resulting in Dowd’s guilty plea, and now, her state prison sentence.
