Cinthia Dawn Crane of Copperas Cove is behind bars after allegedly embezzling more than $230, 000 from a local business.

The 38-year-old faces first-degree felony charges of theft over $200,000. The owner of Modern TV and Appliance in Killeen, Billy J. Mills, reported to Killeen police in July that Crane had written numerous unauthorized checks from the business’ account to herself and two other people when she worked as his administrative assistant. Mills became suspicious of Crane after she refused to provide bank statements to his accountant. When Mill was able to access the company’s account, he discovered the unauthorized checks which amounted to $235, 917.

Crane was being held in the Bell County Jail on $250,000 bond as of Friday evening.
