Ex-bookeeper accused of embezzling from Perkins business
By Patti Weaver

The business's executive director, Orville Manuel, noticed that nine checks had not been deposited into the Cars Run LLC checking account at Stillwater National Bank, the affidavit said.

After the Perkins police chief obtained a subpoena for the account number linked to the transactions, Arvest Bank reported the checks were deposited into Thompson's checking account, the affidavit alleged.

"Arvest further advised an automatic teller machine (ATM) located at 524 N. Main, Stillwater, Ok., was used to complete these transactions," the affidavit alleged.

On March 22, the Perkins police chief phoned Thompson, who agreed to come to the police station on March 25, but she did not show up, the affidavit alleged. When the Perkins police chief called her on March 25, Thompson said she did not want to speak to him regarding the matter and would be contacting an attorney, the affidavit alleged.

If convicted of embezzling $10,720.53 between Sept. 17 and Nov. 12 of last year, Thompson could be given a five-year prison term, fined $5,000, and ordered to pay restitution, court records show.
