An investigation by the Lee County Sheriff's Office Economic Crimes Unit culminated in the arrest of a Fort Myers woman who stole approximately $25,000 from her boss to pay credit card bills.
Cathy Krupp, 53, of 9037 Hendry Road, is charged with grand theft and scheme to defraud.
Krupp worked as a bookkeeper at Ernie's Signs, 3901 Bonita Beach Road in Bonita Springs. She allegedly wrote checks to herself and altered the books to make it appear checks had been sent to vendors.
Krupp allegedly made nearly 50 electronic transfers of company funds to two companies to pay her personal credit card and phone bills.
Police say the scheme had been going on for approximately 20 months.
