A former property manager at two Faribault apartment complexes allegedly stole more than $20,700 in tenant rent payments.

Gwyn Bernedette Quiram, 51, of Lakeville, is charged with three counts of theft by swindle in Rice County District Court.

Court documents state Quiram, a former Paramark Real Estate Services property manager at Town’s Edge Place and Village Green Investors whose job it was to accept rent payments by personal money order or MoneyGram from tenants, was charged after a Paramark employee contacted the Faribault Police Department in March 2020 to report that Quiram had been stealing from the company.

According to the company, Quiram was having payments issued in her name then she would cash or deposit the funds into the personal account of a family member. On March 24, 2020 and May 21, 2020, a company official reportedly provided investigators copies of several money orders, MoneyGrams and a personal check Quiram from tenants of the complexes that were either either cashed or deposited into the family member’s account over a 13-month period from January 2019 to February 2020.

Quiram’s first appearance is scheduled for June 16.
