North Carolina Woman Accused Of Embezzling $300K From County


Dozens of new charges were filed this week against a former Vance County employee who was arrested earlier this month on charges that she embezzled more than $300,000 in county funds.
Christa Harris Reavis, 41, was initially arrested Aug. 8 on 29 counts of forgery and a count of embezzlement. She was rearrested on Tuesday on 49 counts of forgery and counterfeiting and 78 counts of uttering a forged instrument.

Authorities allege that, starting in 2007, Reavis printed checks payable to vendors and then altered payee's names.

Reavis, who worked in the county finance office, also is charged with felony larceny stemming from the disappearance of a bag containing more than $60,000 worth of checks from the county tax office back in 2009.

From the Henderson Daily Dispatch on 10/28/2014:

The former county finance employee accused of stealing more than $300,000 from her employer is seeking to move her case out of Vance County.

Christa Reavis, 41, of 94 Oak Forest Drive, appeared in Vance County Superior Court on Tuesday with her attorney Nick Bagshawe.
