NEWARK, N.J. — A former employee of a northern New Jersey trucking firm has admitted his role in a scheme that defrauded the company of more than $900,000.

Forty-four-year-old Herbert Rodriguez of Woodbridge pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Newark to conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

Rodriguez admitted he conspired with a second worker to submit fake vendor invoices to his employer, Kearny-based J.F. Lomma Inc.

Rodriguez obtained hundreds of checks from the company, which he cashed.

Rodriguez faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing on June 7.
