A Winchester woman was arrested late Thursday afternoon after allegedly embezzling about $24,000 from The Winchester Sun.
Michelle Holloman, 38, of 194 Wabash Ave. Apt. 9, was brought in for questioning Thursday afternoon, Winchester Police Capt. James Hall said, after company representatives reported the theft in June.
“It seems to be clear cut,” Hall said. “The evidence pointed directly to her. She made no statements to her involvement. With the evidence we had on hand, we felt it was necessary to charge her with a crime.”
Following the interview, she was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking more than $10,000, which is a felony with a sentence of five to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Holloman was the circulation manager of the Sun. In the arrest citation, detectives allege that she accepted cash payments from customers, but the entries were deleted from the company system, and other collected funds were never turned in.
