MOUNT PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

The Isabella County Sheriff's office has charged a Mt. Pleasant woman with embezzlement, forgery and fraud after thousands of dollars were allegedly stolen from a meat packing company.

Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski said over the course of three years, 34-year-old Stephanie Lynn Lyon embezzled about $25,835 from Smith and Son's Meat Packing in Mt. Pleasant while working as their accountant.

Mioduszewski said in 2010, Lyon double-signed and cashed 27 checks, as well as producing and forging an additional check. In 2011, there were 21 checks that she allegedly double-signed for and cashed, as well as seven that were produced and forged. Another 15 were double-signed in 2012.

Lyon is currently out on bond.

If Lyon is found guilty of all the charges, she could see up to 10 years in prison for embezzlement, with up to 14 years for the forgery and fraud charges. The sheriff said his deputies are still investigating the case.
