A former office manager for Junction Five-O-Five has been arrested, accused of writing checks to herself from the non-profit organization's bank account.
Police were tipped off after an audit was done on the books and the numbers didn't add up. It turns out almost $200,000 was missing.
Leslie Riley was arrested Wednesday morning. The questions about Riley's bookkeeping started when the IRS placed a lien on the organization's property back in April. A complete audit of the book was ordered. That's when police say they turned up payroll checks Riley wrote to herself.
Police think Riley misappropriated $178,000 from Junction Five-O-Five. That organization helps disabled community members get jobs.
