EUNICE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say a former bookkeeper for the Eunice Public Schools has been arrested on suspicion of embezzlement and fraudulent use of a credit card.

They say Kristen McLean has been booked into the Lea County Detention Center.

It was unclear Monday if she has a lawyer yet.

State Police didn’t immediately release details about the charges against McLean or when they alleged offenses occurred.

After an initial inquiry was completed by the Eunice Public Schools, they requested the State Police for assistance.

Police say McLean failed to appear for two interviews about the allegations and didn’t return calls or messages.

They got an arrest warrant for McLean based on the information provided from the school district.
