A 48-year-old Kennewick woman is facing charges of embezzlement after a 15-month investigation by Hermiston police.

Authorities didn't say who Ann Marie Denney worked for, but the Oregon business was the victim of theft by Denney while she was their bookkeeper.

She allegedly took more than $100,000 during the last several years.

Hermiston police arrested her Thursday, and she is in the Umatilla County jail in Pendleton.

More details expected to be released soon.
