Rochester MN employee accused of altering records to steal money


A former employee of a Rochester dental clinic is accused of stealing about $20,000 by altering or falsifying patient receipts.

Kelly Elizabeth Navitsky, 27, 6137 Shetland Drive N.W., Rochester, is charged with five counts of felony theft in Olmsted District Court. A summons has been issued to make her first court appearance April 22.

Police were called in November 2009 by Rochester Downtown Dental over suspicions that Navitsky, who worked at the office from November 2003 until May 2009, had altered and falsified patient transactions as far back as 2005.

The complaint says she gave unauthorized discounts to extended family members and altered receipts to show credits to patient accounts so that when they paid in cash, she could take the cash. The thefts were discovered by an audit done after she left the office for another job, according to the criminal complaint.
