A woman who is on probation for embezzlement in Chesapeake, Va., was taken into custody in Raleigh on Tuesday on charges that she embezzled more than $97,000 when she worked at the Raleigh Center Ice skating rink in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Police took Patricia Ann Guthrie, 34, into custody after meeting authorities who had brought her from Chesapeake, where records list her as living at 657 Willow Bend Drive.
Arrest warrants that police got from a magistrate last October accuse Guthrie of taking $22,170.33 in the second half of 2012, $16,279.99 between July and December 2013 and $58,868.58 between mid-January and late August 2014.
Guthrie had been arrested in Raleigh on March 20, 2015, and charged with being a fugitive from justice after a Chesapeake grand jury indicted her earlier that month on four counts of embezzlement between the end of 2012 and mid-2014.
Online Virginia court records do not give details of those cases, noting only that the charges were for embezzlement of more than $200 each time.
Prosecutors in Chesapeake dropped three of the charges, and Guthrie pleaded guilty to the fourth one in August, the records show.
A Chesapeake Circuit Court judge in December imposed a five-year prison sentence, then suspended it and placed Guthrie on three years’ probation.
Wednesday, she was being held in the Wake County Detention Center in lieu of $50,000 bail and was slated for a court appearance.
