Employee of Sudbury business charged with stealing $712K from employer


A now former employee with a Sudbury business has been charged with fraud and is accused of stealing from their employer over a period of seven years.

The investigation by the financial crime unit of the Greater Sudbury Police Service began in February into the dealing of the accused, who was no longer working at the business.

“Information provided was that an accounting firm had completed a financial audit for the business noting multiple cheques being made out to the former employee by the employee,” police said in a news release Monday.

“It is believed that the former employee would then process the cheques as “’business expenses,’ however these expenses were not authorized.”

Police believe the employee stole $712,500 between 2016 and 2023.

The accused was arrested Nov. 21 and charged with fraud over $5,000. She was released on an appearance notice with a court date of Jan. 31. Top Stories
