LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been arrested after police say she stole over $3,800 from a nonprofit organization.
According to an arrest warrant, the thefts took place in November and December of 2013. During that time, police say 25-year-old Enjoli Burres was an employee of the Plymouth Community Renewal Center, located near the corner of W. Chestnut St. and S. 16th St.
The center is "is a private, nonprofit urban mission affiliated with the Council for Health and Human Service Ministries of the United Church of Christ," according to its website. The site says the center was founded in 1917, and provides, "education, encouragement and opportunities in the form of parenting classes, teen employment and academic enrichment," specifically for residents of the Russell neighborhood.
During Burres' employment there, police say she had access to the center's checks. According to the arrest warrant, Burres cashed at least eight of Plymouth's checks without the nonprofit's knowledge. The name of the center's program coordinator had been forged on the checks, police say.
The checks were cashed at various locations, including Shorty's Food Mart, where surveillance cameras allegedly recorded Burres cashing one of the checks.
Burres signed several of the checks with her own name, date of birth and social security number, police say.
The total loss to the center was $3,857, according to police.
Burres was arrested Tuesday night and charged with theft and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
