Update: Texas Mother-Son Embezzlement Team Indicted

Ellen Moore Prude, 57, of Palmer, Texas and her son, Christopher Clark, 32, of Red Oak, Texas, have been indicted by an Ellis County grand jury on felony embezzlement charges. Prude and Clark are alleged to have embezzled some $428,000 from Ennis Paint Company, where they were both employed. Prude was employed as a payroll clerk and Clark worked in the warehouse. An audit recently revealed the scheme, in which Prude diverted company funds to personal accounts for Clark and herself, according to investigators. They were both indicted on one charge of theft over $200,000. Prude was also indicted on the charge of "tamper/fabricate physical evidence with intent to impair." The mother and son were arrested last November.
