Donna Brining, of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, was charged over the weekend with taking around $22,000 from the dental office where she previously worked, records state.
Donna Brining, 56, of 2041 Carter Ave., was charged with embezzlement. She worked as the office manager at Dr. Randolph Evans' dental practice until she resigned on April 23, 2003, according to West Virginia State Police Trooper J.D. Bird, who investigated the case.
Evans, whose dental office is on Sierra Drive in Martinsburg, hired an accounting firm to investigate the suspected embezzlement, records show. Employees of the accounting firm randomly selected a four-month period and found that, during that period, $7,630.97 was collected from patients. Of that, only $536.09 had been deposited into the dental office's bank account, records allege.
