RAPIDES PARISH, La. (KLFY)- A 60-year-old Alexandria woman is facing a felony theft charge for allegedly stealing money from her employer.

On August 26, 2019, deputies responded to a local area business, in reference to an internal theft complaint.  

According to the complainant, employee allegedly issued herself additional payroll checks without the consent of her employer. The checks totaled approximately $70,000, authorities said.
