Woman pleads not guilty in theft of $150K from employer

BEND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon woman has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing her of stealing at least $150,000 over three years from a Bend firm that designs and builds golf courses.

KTVZ-TV reports 39-year-old Katrina Kennedy Cannon entered her plea to 16 counts of identity theft and money laundering during her appearance in Deschutes County Circuit Court on Monday.

Cannon had worked as an office manager for DMK Golf Design.

Bend police arrested her in June.

Deputy District Attorney Dan Reesor said at the time of the arrest that Cannon “committed money laundering to conceal and facilitate her ongoing thefts.”

Her trial has been scheduled to begin in June.
