Faye Jensen Given Probation For Theft
An Evansville woman will avoid prison time after she admitted she used a co-worker's company credit card number for her own use..
Faye Jenson was given a four-to-six year suspended prison sentence with three years of probation, after she pleaded guilty to one charge of theft.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say from April through June 2015, Jenson was working as a receptionist at Mountain West Technologies and was provided with a company credit card number, which belonged to another employee.
Suspicions arose when the other employee tried to make a purchase for the business and the card was declined due to excessive daily use.
Upon checking finances, it was discovered that numerous purchases had been made and a lot of the purchases were sent to Jenson's personal residence.
Police also learned that Jenson had been writing down names and passwords of other employees, so that the purchases could be authorized and an audit showed that entries were added or altered to make the purchases look like business expenses.
It was determined that Jenson took more than $10,000, of which $8,000 of it was made through 120 transactions through amazon.com.
When questioned, Jenson admitted to what she did without authorization.
She has also been ordered to pay back $11,000 plus in restitution.
