DONALD, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies are accusing a 27-year-old bookkeeper from Woodburn for
multiple counts of identity theft and computer crimes after a
three-month investigation into money missing from her employer.

Jessica Lynn Koch was arrested on Wednesday.

Sr. Deputy David Wagner says his investigation revealed that starting
in 2009, Koch used company funds to pay her personal bills.

She was the bookkeeper for Bear Electric in Donald from 2006 to 2012.

On several occasions, deputies say Koch used a company credit card to
pay her bills online. On other occasions, she added her personal
utility bills to the company's utility bills when she sent in payments
using a company check.

Thefts from the three-year period were discovered shortly after she
left the company in June.

The company estimates $3,200 was taken.

Koch does not have a criminal record.

She was cited for 31 counts of identity theft, two counts of theft-1
and 11 counts of computer crime.

She will appear in the Marion County Circuit Court on Feb. 6.
