SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Caddo Parish sheriff’s deputies have arrested a company’s bookkeeper in the theft of $90,000 from her employer.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick said in a news release 44-year-old Juanita Adams is accused of using her position at JLM Sartor, Inc., to steal funds from the company between Feb. 2014 and June 2015.

Chadwick says Adams allegedly cashed checks made payable to herself without the owner’s knowledge or consent. She also altered payroll checks to reflect more than she was due and set up ACH payments for her personal bills to be paid from the businesses account.

Adams was booked with felony theft.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Adams.
