LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a Lincoln woman stole more than $11,000 from her employer over a 10-month period.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1ttEr8K ) Lancaster County prosecutors charged 38-year-old Katie Marie Dewald Thursday with felony theft. Court records do not list an attorney.

Officer Katie Flood says Dewald managed the Stony Ridge Apartments from December 2012 to September. During that time, Flood says Dewald collected rent, fees and laundry money and made personal bank deposits. An internal audit shows Dewald took more than $11,000 while employed at the apartment complex.

Flood says when the building’s owner noticed a discrepancy in the amount of incoming money from tenants and confronted Dewald, she resigned and he called police. Dewald turned herself in to the Lancaster County jail in an agreement with investigators.
