Preston woman charged with embezzlement

Posted in Court

PRESTON - Rebecca Jo Kellogg, 40, of Preston, was charged in Fillmore County District Court on Monday, July 7, 2008, with four felony counts of theft and embezzlement of public funds.

According to the criminal complaint, it is alleged that Kellogg cashed checks totalling more than $53,000 over the past three years while employed as a bookkeeper at the Fillmore County Development Achievement Center in Preston. A significant amount of DAC funding, which is used to provide programs for developmentally disabled adults, comes from public grants.

The missing funds came to light in March 2008, when bank statements showed seven checks totalling $3,448.26 were unaccounted for. An investigation by the Preston Police Department revealed that 12 checks written in 2006 for $3,719.86; 62 checks written in 2007 totalling $38,553.83; and 23 checks written in 2008 totalling $11,135.66 were unaccounted for.

It is believed that Kellogg would write payroll checks to herself then delete the transaction from the computer and then destroy bank statements to hide the theft. An audit of accounting records showed that lost checks started in March 2006 and continued through April 2008.

Judge Robert Benson released Kellogg on her own recognizance with conditions, pending her next court appearance on July 21, 2008.
