North Port, Florida -- A former office manager of a local business was arrested Tuesday for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer over the past year.
Sarasota County Sheriff's officials say the owner of Precision Fabrication in Nokomis fired Diana Urban in December for claiming vacation time she was not entitled to. At that time, he reported a review of the books revealed Urban had written checks to herself and forged the company ledger to show they were written to company vendors.
In all, detectives discovered Urban wrote and cashed 119 checks totaling over $234,000 between November 2011 and December 2012.
Deputies arrested Urban and charged with first degree felony scheme to defraud and is being held on $50,000 bond.
