Bookkeeper accused of stealing more than $85K from business

COLUMBUS, Neb.n – A bookkeeper has been accused of stealing more than $85,000 from a Columbus business.

Platte County Court records say 45-year-old Jennifer Held, of Monroe, is charged with three counts of forgery and two of theft. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press. Her next court hearing is scheduled for May 5.

The records say the owner of Clarkson Television reported to police the discovery of unauthorized checks being written on the company account. The records also say Held acknowledged writing the checks, saying she needed the money for bills.
