PETERSBURG — A management consultant was arrested Tuesday on charges of embezzling almost $500,000 from four medical practices that hired him to handle payroll, police said. Stanley Neil Crooms, 60, of St. Petersburg was charged with first-degree grand theft. He was released from Pinellas County jail on $50,000 bail. Police say Crooms ran Professional Management Consultants SCVS at 250 Mirror Lake Drive. His company was contracted to provide payroll services to each medical practice from January 2009 through March 2010. This included handling the deduction of taxes and insurance premiums. The medical practices were receiving statements from Crooms that showed taxes had been paid. But the IRS later informed the companies that they were not paid by Crooms' company, police said. Police said Crooms told detectives he used the money to pay personal expenses and to keep his business solvent.
