Ex-bookkeeper faces theft charge

A former receptionist and bookkeeper for a long-term care and physical rehabilitation facility was charged Thursday with spending several thousand dollars of the company’s money for personal use.

Erin L. Grabner, 33, of the 200 block of West El Dorado Trail, faces one count of theft for what her former employer at Ashton Creek Health and Rehab Center said was misuse of a company credit card, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Supervisors at the facility told police Grabner was employed as a receptionist and accounts payable clerk.

In all, Grabner’s former supervisor accused her of spending $7,385 in unapproved purchases, the affidavit said.

She declined an interview with police on the advice of her attorney, according to the report. She is charged with one count of theft.
