North Carolina Woman Accused Of Embezzling Nearly $200K From Mill

From WHKY-TV on 1/28/2015:

45-year-old Crystal Franklin Burgess Wilson of Worthington Place in Lincolnton has been arrested by Lincoln Co. Sheriff’s Officers on a charge of felony embezzlement greater than $100,000.

She’s accused of taking more than $196,000 from a Denver business over a seven-year period. On January 20, an official with S&L Sawmill on N.C. Highway16 in Denver filed a report regarding funds that were stolen from the company. Detectives were provided with copies of 179 checks written on the S&L Sawmill account to the suspect.

The checks written to Wilson, her bank and other accounts, totaled $196, 885.86. The checks were written between 2008 and 2014. She was terminated from employment in November of 2014. Detective Richard Calhoun interviewed Wilson, who admitted to taking the funds.

She was taken before a Lincoln County Magistrate yesterday (January 27) and released on a $25,000 unsecured bond. Wilson was scheduled to make a first appearance in District Court today.
