Woman Allegedly Defrauds Employer of Over Half a Million Dollars
A woman, 52, is facing fraud charges after allegedly funneling over $600,000 of her employer's money into bank accounts for charities she was involved in.
Kingston police say the woman was working as comptroller for a local business while also serving on the board of two charities in Maxville, a small community north of Cornwall.
Investigators say both charities incurred large debts due to mistakes the suspect made, and it's alleged that she siphoned money from the business to the charities over a period of three years to compensate for the loss of money.
The issue was reported to police in December of 2018 and the woman was arrested at her home on March 11.
She was charged with fraud over $5,000, and released with a future court date.
