February 27, 2018

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — The former manager of Crescent Water Supply and Improvement District has been arrested for allegedly embezzling more than $40,000 in the last two years.

The Herald and News reports 47-year-old Darcy Gerhard was arrested Friday for crimes that allegedly occurred between February 2016 and December 2017.

The Klamath County Sheriff’s Office says Gerhart forged 40 checks in the business’ name and deposited them into her bank account. She also allegedly used the company credit card for unauthorized purchases 92 times, leading to a total loss of more than $40,000.

The district fired Gerhart in January because of the alleged thefts.

Gerhart appeared in court Monday charged with second-degree theft and three counts of first-degree theft.
