Linda Poole, a Bagdad woman who was indicted in February for embezzling more than $110,000 from her employer, will return to court Sept. 17 for a new hearing.

Poole, 57, was indicted on 11 counts of theft by unlawful taking over $10,000, 2 counts of theft by unlawful taking by disposition and 7 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument in connection with thefts from Amen East, an auto salvage business in Bagdad.

The indictment said the thefts took place over a space of one year, from September 2010 to September 2011. The forged instruments were checks drawn on Citizens Union Bank from September through November 2010, KSP Det. Ben Wolcott said. The checks were written in amounts ranging from $208 to $777, for a total of $4,031.

Poole had been working at the business for a couple of years, Wolcott said, adding that Poole has been terminated from her job there.

Theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 is a Class C felony, punishable by 5 to 10 years in jail for each offense.
