PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a state Department of Transportation dispatch supervisor and her former intern in connection with a scheme involving falsified time cards.

The Oregon State Police says 40-year-old Sarah Erickson of Albany was taken into custody Thursday and her ex-intern, 24-year-old Katherine Ficker of Springfield, was arrested Friday.

The agency says the scheme involved Ficker being paid as a temporary employee for work she didn’t do and then shifting money back to Erickson. The payments totaled more than $10,000.

Erickson and Ficker were booked into the Marion County Jail on charges of aggravated theft. Erickson has also been charged with official misconduct while Ficker was accused of forgery.

The alleged crimes occurred between August 2012 and June 2013.
