SULPHUR, La. (AP) - Two women are accused of stealing more than $150,000 from their employer.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office says 53-year-old Susan Mire and 43-year-old Donya Louviere, both of Sulphur, have admitted to the theft of at least $153,371. They surrendered to authorities earlier this month.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kim Myers tells KPLC-TV (https://bit.ly/1PG01jX ) they’ve investigated the case for more than a year.

Authorities say Mire was the company’s office manager and Louviere was the accounts payable clerk. The women admitted using company credit cards for personal use, issuing extra paychecks to themselves and electronically transferring company funds to their personal accounts.

They said they used the credit cards to put gas in their personal vehicles and make personal credit card and loan payments.

Both women are free on $25,000 bond.
