CLEARFIELD -- A 44-year-old woman is accused of writing numerous checks to herself for a "staggering" amount, police say.
Tara Lee Burdick, of Farmington, was booked Thursday in Davis County Jail on seven counts of forgery and one count of communications fraud.
Police arrested her following an investigation that started earlier this month, when a bank called the owner of Chariot Auto Sales in Clearfield, said Assistant Clearfield Police Chief Mike Stenquist.
The bank noticed "some suspicious activity" on the business account. Within the past year, Burdick wrote at least 15 checks amounting to $58,000, Stenquist said.
Burdick had worked for the car lot for the past 13 years.
The investigation is ongoing.
