DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Bureau of Investigation says a 70-year-old former Clear Creek County employee faces multiple felony charges after an investigation into the theft of more than $200,000 from a center that provides various social services.

The agency says Candace Morehouse has been arrested on theft, money laundering and forgery charges.

It says Morehouse is being held on $15,000 bond at the Clear Creek County Detention Facility.

There was no immediate information on whether Morehouse had an attorney representing her yet.

The CBI says the thefts occurred between 2010 and 2018 and involved the writing 150 checks that Morehouse used for her own benefit.
