Shelby woman accused of embezzling from New Era Wesco.


NEW ERA — A 51-year-old Shelby woman is accused of embezzling at least $2,200 from the New Era Wesco store, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

The woman has not been arraigned yet, so police are not releasing her name. She is lodged in the Oceana County Jail.

A sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to the store, at 4667 S. First St., Monday, Jan. 29, Mast said.

“Upon arrival there, the deputy spoke with management about a possible theft from the store by an employee. Through the deputy’s investigation, he was able to uncover evidence of at least $2,200 that was stolen from the store. Evidence was collected from the store, and an interview was arranged with the suspect.

“During an interview at the Oceana Sheriff’s Office yesterday afternoon, that suspect did admit to the theft of some of the missing funds,” the sheriff said. “The investigation is continuing as more evidence is being evaluated and collected.

“The suspect, a 51-year-old Shelby woman, was arrested and a warrant is pending today.”
