MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) -

A 30-year-old Marshalltown woman has been accused of embezzling from the Marshalltown Animal Medical Clinic when she worked there.

The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports that Abby Kjormoe turned herself in last week and was released. She's due back in court on Friday to face felony charges of ongoing criminal conduct and theft and two misdemeanors.

Marshalltown Police Capt. Mike Hanken says a veterinarian contacted police in September to report his suspicions. Hanken says investigators think Kjormoe used company computers to conceal the theft of more than $14,000.

A public phone listing for Kjormoe couldn't be found. Online court records don't list the name of her attorney.
