KEENE — A North Walpole woman is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a local dentist.
Eileen Fletcher, 28, of 8 Taylor St., North Walpole, is facing up to 15 years in prison on felony charges of theft by unauthorized taking. Fletcher was recently indicted by a grand jury convened in the Cheshire Superior Court.
She is accused of taking payments made to Keene Dentistry and Implants in 2018 while she was an employee there, keeping the money for herself instead of depositing it into the business accounts, according to the indictments.
Fletcher is accused of taking between $1,000 and $1,500 from the business in August, less than $1,000 in October and more than $1,500 in November.
She is charged with class B felony theft by unauthorized taking for August, class A misdemeanor theft by unauthorized taking for October and class A felony theft by unauthorized taking for November.
She was also charged with an additional count of class A theft by unauthorized taking for all three months.
Class A felonies carry a possible prison sentence of up to 15 years if convicted.
Fletcher is due in court next week to be arraigned on the charges.
