BARRINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A northern Illinois woman has been charged with stealing more than $1 million from a suburban Chicago company where she worked as a bookkeeper.

The Chicago Tribune reports Terry L. Norris of Volo was charged with multiple felonies, including theft exceeding $1 million, financial institution fraud and identity theft.

Police say Norris embezzled the money over a 10-year period from a Barrington commercial real estate company. They say she wrote more than 1,300 fraudulent checks between 2006 and 2016. Police Chief David Dorn says she wrote some checks to her personal creditors, such as for car payments, then went into the company’s computer system and changed the check to make it appear legitimate.

Norris didn’t respond to a request for comment.
