Kewaunee woman arrested for embezzlement

A Kewaunee woman was been taken into custody Thursday morning for allegedly defrauding her employer.  According to a Kiel Police Department press release, a local business owner was suspicious of missing money from the company back in June.  A subsequent audit of financial reports was turned over to Kiel Police.  Results from the audit showed evidence that over $65,000 was stolen from the business by the then-employee in 2018 and 2019.  Investigators from the Manitowoc County District Attorney's office are recommending over 200 felony charges that include Theft, Forgery, Uttering, and Fraudulent Writings.  Kiel Police Chief David Funkhouser says the name of the 51-year old Kewaunee woman is not being released and no other details are available at this time as the investigation remains ongoing.
