If you have been arrested on an embezzlement charge, you may not even understate what the state is accusing you of especially if you have never been involved in crime before. This is typically referred to as a "white collar" crime, meaning that it takes place in the workplace or in professional circles.
So, under the state law in New Hampshire, someone can be arrested on an embezzlement charge if law enforcement officials believe they took cash or property including stocks and bonds from someone they work for or with or with whom they have some sort of fiduciary relationship with. In many instances, it occurs in the banking or accounting circles, or even in corporate workplaces.
If you have been accused of embezzlement, that means that authorities believe you took the property or the cash for yourself. Otherwise, you would be facing larceny charges. A larceny is simply the taking of the property or the cash.

In this case, some customers complained that they were told by the man to pay their bills in cash or to leave a blank check. The court documents said he would rent out the units for cash and then not make note of it in the company's books.
