A Fisher, Minn., woman is accused of embezzling more than $105,000 from a Grand Forks moving business, where she was formerly employed.
Hayley Jean Anderson, 32, is facing felony charges of misapplication of entrusted property, theft and forgery. If she’s convicted of all three charges, Anderson could face up to 50 years in prison.
Anderson worked for All About Moving Inc. for several years as an office manager, an affidavit for her arrest said. She had access to the company’s financial accounts and was responsible for handling several aspects of the business’ finances.
Between November 2015 and July 2018, Anderson allegedly modified her hourly pay rate and added unauthorized overtime to her paychecks totaling $10,318. The affidavit said she forged at least 12 checks, totaling $10,836, for reimbursements or unauthorized payments. During a three-year time frame, Anderson also made unauthorized transfers to her credit card from the business checking account that reached $84,037, the court document said.
Anderson told the business owner she wants to pay the money back, the affidavit said.
A warrant was issued Friday for Anderson’s arrest, but she was not yet in custody on Monday, Aug. 13.
