GREENVILLE, Mich. - Authorities say a former Greenville Area Recreation and Community Center employee embezzled thousands of dollars "in bits and pieces" throughout her employment.
Thirty-five-year-old Michelle Russell took more than $5,000 from the city, according to the Greenville Daily News. Russell faces a possible five-year felony.
Russell started taking small amounts of money in March of 2016, then a deposit bag containing about $5,000 disappeared in December 2016. A city employee took notice and contacted authorities to investigate.
Russell was charged on Thursday, Dec. 13, and will be back in court later this month.
