Woman Accused of Embezzling Thousands from Employer

A Chippewa Falls woman is accused of stealing more than $173,000 from her employer by cashing 10 checks with forged signatures.

Police questioned Kelly Williams, 30, after she gave the owner of Area Financial Services in Altoona a check for more than $30,000.

A criminal complaint shows she admitted to police she took some money.

The complaint shows the owner told police he found that Williams was an employee and he found that she took between $1,500 and $2,900 per check.

Those checks were dated between January 2006 and November 2007.

If convicted, Williams could spend 76 years in prison.
