New Bern, NC woman charged with embezzling from dental practice

A New Bern woman has been charged with seven felony counts of embezzling money from the dental practice where she worked.

Kristen E. Hauber, 43, who listed a 105 Meadows St. address, was charged Monday with taking a total of $7,860.50 from the Coastal Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery office, located at 604 McCarthy Blvd., between Jan. 7 and July 1 of this year.

 According to arrest warrants, sums taken during that time were: $697.50 on Jan. 7; $785 on Feb. 4; $445 on March 16; $1,269 on April 6; $2,898 on May 2; $1,299 on June 21; and $467 on July 1.

Hauber was released on her own recognizance and was scheduled to have her first court appearance on Friday morning.

In North Carolina, a felony embezzlement conviction for less than $100,000 carries a penalty of five to six months in prison.

In addition to its New Bern office, Coastal Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery has an office in Greenville.
