LINCOLNTON, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Lincoln County accuse a woman of embezzling more than $148,000 from the medical practice where she worked as a bookkeeper for six years.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says 50-year-old Donna Marie Varin of Catawba is charged with one felony count of embezzlement in excess of $100,000.

A statement from the sheriff’s office says an investigation was launched in December after North State Medical Group in Denver reported that an employee had been embezzling money from the practice between 2007 and 2011.

Investigators discovered that cash receipts received would be turned over to Varin, who then made a bank deposit for less than what was taken in.

Varin was arrested last week and is free on a $30,000 bond. It’s not known if she has an attorney.
