A True Crime Story About Money & Fruitcake
Collin Street Bakery’s embezzlement scandal is in the news again. But this time, it’s a good thing! Recently, the Bakery was featured on Discovery+’s newest true-crime documentary, “Fruitcake Fraud.”
The show follows FBI agent Christine Edson and her colleagues as they look back on the nearly decade-long embezzlement scheme undertaken by Sandy Jenkins, the bakery’s accountant. Sandy, who used his position as the keeper of the bakery’s financial keys to fuel an opulent lifestyle complete with pricey cars, high-end watches, and a luxurious Santa Fe home, stole close to 17 million dollars from the Bakery. His 9-year spending spree continued until 2013 when federal agents knocked on his door. Even though Sandy was caught, that didn’t stop him from one last attempt at salvaging his ill-gotten gains. Greed, as they say, is one devilish demon.
The 90-minute exposé, which launched in early December 2021, has received a five-star rating on Amazon and an onslaught of rave reviews from the media and viewers alike. Check out just a handful of publications singing the show’s praises:
