A former employee at a Fulton County business surrendered to officers at the Miami County Jail after a warrant was issued for her arrest. An Indiana State Police investigation revealed she stole more than $70,000 from the company for her personal use.
Indiana State Police Detective Josh Rozzi initiated an investigation after the owner of R&W Concrete LLC and R&W Excavating in Macy noted that an IRS audit and an internal audit found that several business checks were written for personal expenditures.
The investigation found that Deborah O’Connor, 50, reportedly wrote out several of the business’ checks for personal use between January 2008 and December 2009. She then allegedly falsely documented the expenses as business related.
O’Connor worked as the office manager for R&W Concrete from 2004 through 2011. She was authorized to write checks and use the company credit card for business purchases but not for personal expenses.
She is housed in the Miami County Jail on ten counts of Theft, a Class D felony.
