Minnesota Woman Accused Of Embezzling $217K From Utility

Susan Kay Thompson, 53, of Minnesota, has been charged with embezzling $217,581.13 from Minnesota Power, where she had been employed as director of customer service.  According to authorities, over a period of nine years, from 2000 to 2009, Thompson engaged in a fraudulent reimbursement scheme whereby expenses and credit card charges made were for personal rather than legitimate business expenses.  Thompson had been a 20 veteran of the company before she was suspended and subsequently resigned in late January 2010 after an internal audit revealed the apparent misappropriations, according to reports.
