LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a woman for stealing over $11,000 from the property management company she once worked for.
According to a warrant for arrest, 35-year-old Constance M. Short worked as a bookkeeper for Bailey Property Management back in 2009, when she stole the funds from the company.
Police say she fraudulently made two company checks payable to herself, then made duplicate copies of them, for a total of four fraudulent checks. All four of these checks were negotiated.
Short then accessed the company's accounting software and erased all records of the transactions, according to the arrest warrants.
But that wasn't all: police say Short lied was given a check to be deposited into the company's account, but there's no evidence that she ever did so. Instead, false documents were provided to the company indicating that the deposit had taken place.
Authorities also allege that Short used the company's Home Depot card to make personal charges, including charges to a utility company, an attorney's office, a publishing company and AT&T.
Police say that Short, "while acting as a bookkeeper for the victim, also entered false payments to her own rent ledger, via false money orders. Fifth Third Bank verified that the money order she stated she submitted did not exist. She also accepted cash payments from tenants, gave them a paid receipt for their rent, but failed to deposit the funds into the victim's bank account."
In total, police say $11,027 was stolen from Bailey Property Management between Jan. 29, 2009 and Dec. 29, 2009.
Short was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with theft by deception, fraudulent use of a credit card and tampering with physical evidence.
