RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — An eastern Indiana woman who seemed upset when her employer offered her a promotion is now accused of embezzling more than $327,000 from the business following an audit by suspicious company officials.

Denise Eileen King, 55, faces one count of felony theft for her alleged embezzlement from Logistics Revolution, a Richmond freight transportation company.

The company’s president told Richmond police that company leaders had attempted to promote King from an accounting position, but they found her reaction of concern to that offer strange and she subsequently resigned, according to a probable cause affidavit. After King quit, it was discovered that she had deleted files from her company computer, the (Richmond) Palladium-Item reported.

An audit followed, and it eventually revealed that checks topping $300,000 had been written to another trucking company that Logistics Revolution had not done business with in years.

King allegedly deposited $327,240 in fraudulent checks between November 2017 and October 2019 from Logistics Revolution into a bank account she had created, according to the affidavit. The Richmond woman then emptied that account by diverting those funds into her personal account, an account for a vehicle loan she had taken out and two accounts in the names of her children, the affidavit states.

Online court records do not list an attorney for King who could speak on her behalf.
