SISTERS, OR -- A Sisters bookkeeper is accused of embezzling more than $400,000 from her employer. Cheryl Waldron faces 27 felony counts of aggravated identity theft and first degree theft and forgery.
She was the bookkeeper and office manager for Robinson and Owen Heavy Construction for 17 years. The Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office says the company claims Waldron embezzled $430,000 over the course of several years.
Waldron was booked into the Deschutes County Jail Monday, and had her first court appearance Tuesday.
"We've had a recent rash of greed-induced crime in Deschutes County," District Attorney John Hummel said in a statement released Tuesday. "People who think they are smarter than the IRS and law enforcement will lose in the end."
