Gwinn woman charged with embezzlement

A Gwinn woman faces up to 14 years in prison for embezzling from a non-profit organization.

Following a month long investigation, Marquette Police arrested 33-year-old Angie Jane Spaulding January 8th.

According to police, the Executive Director from the St. Vincent dePaul Society in Marquette approached authorities, saying a possible embezzlement had been found. The discovery was made in a review of the store’s financial records and credit card statements. Spaulding, who had worked for St. Vincent dePaul for 10 years, was identified as a suspect.

Police say Spaulding used the non-profit’s credit cards to make personal purchases in excess of $10,000. She is being charged with felony embezzlement of $1,000 or more, but less than $20,000, from a non-profit or charitable organization.

Spaulding is also being charged with a second felony:  stealing or retaining a financial transaction device without consent. If convicted of both charges, she could face up to 14 years in prison.

Spaulding is free on bond; her next court date is January 25th.
