Woman arrested for stealing from employer
A former office assistant at a local dental office was arrested today for stealing funds from her employer.
Ginger Maxwell, 36, of Benton was arrested on charges of false accounting, felony theft and computer fraud following an investigation by the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force.
Maxwell is accused of stealing cash payments received at the office. She is also accused of altering records in a way that allowed her to steal insurance payments on bogus claims from several fraudulent accounts that she had created.
Maxwell was booked into the Bossier City Jail. The total amount of money involved is more than $19,000.
The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force is composed of white collar crime investigators with the Bossier City Police Department and Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office. Bossier City Chief of Police Shane McWilliams and Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington formed the task force in December of last year to combine resources from both agencies to combat crimes such as identity theft, fraud and embezzlement with the city and parish.
