DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -A Cottonwood woman is charged with embezzlement and numerous other crimes related to alleged thefts from the business where she worked.

Julie Kay Forehand, 42, faces nearly 40 charges, most of them forgery allegations. She is also charged with one count each of embezzlement and tampering with physical evidence.

Her arrest stems from a recent complaint from her employer, Houston County Sheriff’s Office Major Bill Rafferty told News 4. He neither provided additional details of her arrest, though sources say the money was taken from Allied Fence Company.

Forehand, as of Wednesday morning, is held in the Houston County Jail on bonds totaling about $400,000.
