GOFFSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - A 52-year-old New Hampshire woman was sentenced to serve more than two years in prison for embezzling more than $1 million from a Manchester auto body shop.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1NIHNmK ) Suzan Harbinson was sentenced to serve 27 months behind bars for the crime on Monday by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Laplante.

Harbinson worked part-time as a bookkeeper for Henry’s Collision Center from January 2010 to January 2015. The Goffstown woman’s duties included preparing checks drawn from the company’s operating account for the owner to sign.

Prosecutors say Harbinson forged the owner’s signature on 145 checks between December 2010 and January 2015. She covered up the thefts by falsely reporting that the checks were voided.

Harbinson was also ordered to make restitution payments.
