Colorado Woman Charged With Embezzling At Least $150K From Computer Graphics Company

From NBC 9News on 2/26/2015:

A woman has been charged for stealing tens of thousands of dollars from her employer.

Kristie Marx, 44, was charged with computer crime, two counts of theft and two counts of forgery.
Marx is accused of stealing more than $150,000 from Blue Moon Works, a computer graphics company she worked for.

Through several schemes, she allegedly charged personal items to a company credit card, gave herself an unauthorized pay raise, manipulated state and federal withholding taxes, wrote herself checks from the company account and added herself and her dependents to the company health insurance plan.

Marx was arrested last week and formally advised of her charges Wednesday. She is in custody on a $10,000 bond.

Marx will appear in court April 13 for a preliminary hearing.
