A former bookkeeper for Wabash County was arrested Friday morning on five felony counts. 44-year old Sara Chamberlain of Urbana is suspected of stealing approximately $75,000 from the Wabash County Clerk’s Office over roughly a two-year period.
Indiana State Police began an investigation after an audit by the State Board of Accounts revealed missing funds. Chamberlain purportedly deposited the funds into her personal bank account and misrepresented the dollar amount of incoming fees to the clerk’s office.
Chamberlain faces three counts of theft, one count of official misconduct and one count of corrupt business influence.
