The long-time payroll manager at Augusta Lung Associates was arrested Tuesday for embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to a sheriff’s report.
Shirley Ann Taylor, 64, of Sunshine Court, Avera, was charged with felony theft by deception.
The suspect’s scheme was likely uncovered when she went on medical leave in November. The new payroll manager was hired in February, and the theft was reported April 6.
Important note: The embezzlement story in the paper should have said that a relative of TAYLOR also works there and was given unauthorized hourly wage increases from her proper pay of $14 an hour to $18 an hour, according to a sheriff’s report.
