Police arrested a Newton County woman this week and charged her with nearly 200 counts of forgery after stealing more than $250,000 from her employer.
Tiffany Hewell, 30, was booked into the Newton County Jail on Monday, charged with 92 felony counts of forgery as well as 100 misdemeanor counts.
According to Covington police Capt. Ken Malcom, Hewell worked in the accounting department at Crowne Community Homes, a Conyers-based home builder.
“Her employer became aware of missing checks in mid-February and conducted an audit,” Malcom told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an e-mail. “They realized they were missing $255,139.43 in funds.”
Malcom said that when confronted by her employer, Hewell “left the business and later sent a message apologizing for her involvement.”
He said that Covington police investigators discovered that between February 2011 and February 2013, Hewell had nine “associates” cash 192 missing checks at the “Big EZ” store on Washington Street in Covington.
“These associates would keep a portion of the money and then return the majority of the funds to her,” Malcom said.
Police have also arrested two of those associates, and have issued warrants for the remaining seven.
Also arrested were Darrell McKibben, 49, of Covington, who was charged with 37 felony counts of forgery and 31 misdemeanor counts of forgery and Barry Jordan, 42, of Covington, who was charged with 22 felony counts and 28 misdemeanor counts of forgery.
Warrants were issued for Crystal Thrasher, Wilson Lamar Price, Timothy Sims, Darrick Howard, Jason Myers, Shalter Lashawn Rogers and Antonio Howard, charging all seven with numerous counts of forgery.
Police in Conyers, where Hewell worked, have also charged her with multiple counts of theft by taking. Hewell remained in the Newton County Jail without bond on Thursday.
