Twin Falls woman accused of stealing nearly $400K from employer

28 Jul

We’ve all had dreams of screwing over an awful boss, but this woman actually went ahead and did it. Twin Falls resident Marie Watkins, 57, allegedly embezzled nearly $400,000 from her employer, Alliance Title and Escrow of Boise. After the company noticed $366,122.15 missing, they hired an independent accounting firm to sort it all out.

It doesn’t seem like Watkins handles pressure well as she allegedly told the firm that she took money over the last 10 years to pay for bills and her childrens’ college expenses. On Friday she’ll face a preliminary hearing for felony grand theft for possession of stolen property. She probably should have just got that second job at Applebees.
