A female executive suspected of running off with company money was escorted back to China from Fiji on Monday, according to China's Ministry of Public Security.

The Global Times reports that Chen Yi, former general manager of Shanghai Fanxin Insurance Agency, allegedly stole 500 million yuan or $81 million from the company and ran away, according to previous media reports.

The case was reported to the local police in Shanghai on August 12th. 

The ministry asked for international law enforcement forces for help and found Chen in Fiji.

The ministry sent a work team to Fiji and seized Chen in cooperation with the local police.

The Fiji Police Force is yet to comment.
