BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – A bookkeeper for a company in Boulder is accused of embezzling $750,000 from the company.

Police arrested Michelle Lynn Shelton Friday. She worked at Highline Financial.

Boulder detectives began investigating when another accountant filled in for Shelton and discovered money being transferred from the company to personal banking accounts.

    What’s with all this greed? That’s a lot of money. What the heck did she do with all of it? This woman has some BIG issues with honesty. I hope they throw the book at her. Again, this is due to bad accounting practices, it would have been caught right away if they had better checks and balances. Checks and money transfers should have 2 signatures. Whomever was looking over her shoulder didn’t do thier job.
