POLICE: Woman Embezzled $27,000 From Employer

A former office manager at a pest control company is accused of stealing $27,000 from the business.

Dana Lewis turned herself into Ayden police Tuesday morning.

Missing money from Russ Pest Control was first reported back in November to police.

The company says the 39-year-old woman worked for them for the past three years.

Police say her bond was set at $20,000 and has a first court appearance Wednesday.

    She was just setting up her "own" redistribution of wealth program, and I sure she just made some innocent mis-calculations. Buzz-

    I am sorry but this 72 yo widow wasn't worried about her son or business this past year while she has been jet setting around the country with her boyfriend. She should have been taking care of her own business. One can never be to careful these days! Wrong is wrong, but be smart enough to take care of your own business or SELL IT to someone who would run it like it should have been.

    The owner is a 72 year old widowed lady. She is struggling with the knowledge that her youngest of 6 children is dying with ALS. She didnt need the hassel of a dishonest employee on top of all her other worries. Running a business in today economy is tough enough without having to worry about who you can and cannot trust!!! The 16 families that are supported by her business are greatful to have her in there lives!!! May god bless her and her family!!

    One need only look at Dana's history and know that these charges are true. Maybe she'll get more than a slap on the wrist this time. She's done it enough times to know better by now.

    I don't know Dana and I won't bash her character. We don't know the reason behind her doing what she did, but talking about her and bashing her character won't make the situation change. So what she has a past...don't we all? We may not steal, embezzle or lie, but sin is sin and when we talk about people--gossip, or lie...we are guilty! Think about it folks and when you are pointing the finger at Dana, remember there are fingers pointing back at YOU!

    I am so sorry Grimesland I see she has you fooled too! All I can say is to follow the case for the FACTS and in the mean time keep you valuables looked safely away.
