Woman accused of embezzling thousands from Hermitage business

Posted: Updated:

A Masury woman is accused of embezzling more than $27,000 from her place of employment.

A criminal complaint filed in Mercer County District Court reports that Jackie Eicher, 36, was working as a title clerk an notary at Northstar Power Sports on North Hermitage road when her boss asked her about recent merchandise returns involving high ticket items.

Eicher told her employer that she had accepted the returns herself and placed the items back into storage herself.

The boss became more suspicious when he realized that one of the items was a large plow system weighing several hundred pounds.

After further questioning by the employer, he says Eicher admitted that she fraudulently processed the return and kept the money herself not only on the plow, but other items as well.

An audit of store records found that Eicher processed 25 fraudulent returns between August 2014 and December 2015, totaling $27,343.63.
Reports say that Eicher provided a written statement, saying she was sorry and stupid for taking the money.

Eicher is charged with theft.  She is free on bond awaiting a preliminary hearing next week.
