Ex-employee sought in business theft



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A former employee of a local weigh scale company is accused of stealing $400,000 from the company recently.

The woman in charge of accounting for the business contacted deputies to report a former employee had been stealing since December 2013. The woman said the 46-year-old ex-employee had worked as an accounting department supervisor, but was fired July 9.

The former employee’s transgressions included giving herself a substantial raise, making herself a vendor and billing the company by writing numerous company checks to herself. It is also believed the former employee tampered with documents and forged signatures of other employees.

The company said they are collecting evidence against the woman, and the case has been turned over to an investigator for review.
