The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Diana Urban, 42, of North Port, for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer over the past year.
The owner of Precision Fabrication in Nokomis fired Urban in December for claiming vacation time she was not entitled to, according to a sheriff’s office report. At that time a review of the books revealed Urban had written checks to herself and forged the company ledger to show they were written to company vendors.
In total, detectives found Urban wrote and cashed 119 checks totaling $234,470 between Nov. 2011 and Dec. 2012. Urban was arrested Tuesday, Feb.12 and charged with First Degree Felony Scheme to Defraud. Urban is being held on $50,000 bond.
