Woman charged with stealing from work

by

MILWAUKEE (WSAU)  A human resources manager for a large Milwaukee scrap recycler is free on a signature bond, after being charged with embezzling over a million-dollars from her company. 44-year-old Jacqueline Fox made her first appearance in Milwaukee County Circuit Court yesterday on six felony embezzlement counts. She’s due back in court April 18th, to determine if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.

Prosecutors said Fox stole most of the money by authorizing direct deposits for seven former employees – and she allegedly made an unauthorized payment to herself of around $13,000. Officials said she got caught last summer when a worker received a wrong pay envelope by mistake.

The criminal complaint quoted Fox as saying she used the money to care for her paralyzed mother and pay school tuition for her daughter. Investigators also found that she made large A-T-M withdrawals from Milwaukee’s Potawatomi Casino – although she denied having a gambling problem.
