NEW: Former Boca boss gets nine years for defrauding company of $1.7M


A former top official at a Boca Raton company was sentenced Friday to nine years in prison for defrauding the company of $1.7 million and using it to buy two cars and real estate in the Blue Ridge mountains of western Virginia.

Brian Charles Tolley, 32, forged documents from branches of the U.S. government and military services and submitted them to PartsBase, which compiles and manages a database of areospace parts for government agencies, asking to be reimbursed, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Tolley then used the money to buy a 2011 Buick Enclave, a 2011 Lincoln Navigator and property in Bedford, Va. He also failed to report the income on his federal income tax returns from 2007 through 2011 and failed to file tax returns in 2012 and 2013.

Tolley, whose legal residence is in Bedford, worked for PartsBase as a vice president in 2001, as its chief information officer from 2001 through January 2014. He also was its president from 2010 until January 2014.
