Secretary allegedly pilfered from Ogden company for years

First Published Jan 23 2014 12:40 pm • Last Updated Jan 23 2014 01:12 pm

A secretary employed by an Ogden electrical contracting firm has been charged with a dozen counts of felony theft and forgery in connection with tens of thousands of dollars in stolen checks written on the company’s accounts.

The 40-year-old woman was charged on Tuesday in 2nd District Court with four second-degree felony counts relating to thefts allegedly committed in January 2010 against Positive Power. She also was charged with eight third-degree felony counts of forgery for purportedly writing checks in April 2013 to pay credit card debts and personal loans.

Court documents do not provide a total for the misappropriated funds, but in at least four of the cases losses to Positive Power were place a minimum of $5,000 each.

The defendant, arrested Jan. 17, refused to answer detectives questions about the allegations, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The defendant is scheduled to make her initial appearance before 2nd District Judge Ernie Jones on Jan. 29.
