BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - A former office assistant at a Bossier Parish dental office has been arrested for allegedly stealing from that $19,000 from her employer.
The Times reports 36-year-old Ginger Maxwell, of Benton, was arrested Thursday on charges of false accounting, felony theft and computer fraud following an investigation by the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force.
Maxwell is accused of stealing cash payments received at the office. She is also accused of altering records in a way that allowed her to steal insurance payments on bogus claims from several fraudulent accounts that she had created.
Maxwell was booked into the Bossier City Jail.
It was unclear whether Maxwell has an attorney.
