Tacoma Woman Charged with $540K Embezzlement

SEATTLE (AP) — A Tacoma woman has been indicted on charges she stole more than $540,000 from the company she worked for, Food Services of America.

Julie Anne White worked as an accountant at FSA’s center in Kent. Federal prosecutors say that from 2007 until last year, she used the company’s electronic payment system to pay the mortgage on her home, to transfer money to her own account and to buy a $39,000 boat.

White pleaded not guilty Thursday to five counts of wire fraud. Prosecutors are seeking to seize her home and the boat as proceeds of illegal activity.
