NOKOMIS, FL. - The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a North Port woman for stealing over $200,000 from her employer over the past year.

Arrested was 41-year-old Diana Urban.

According to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, the owner of Precision Fabrication in Nokomis fired Urban in December for claiming vacation time she was not entitled to. At that time, a review of the books revealed Urban had written checks to herself and forged the company ledger to show they were written to company vendors.

All totaled, detectives found Urban wrote and cashed 119 checks totaling $234,470.24 between November 2011 and December 2012.

She was arrested this morning and charged with First Degree Felony Scheme to Defraud. Urban is being held on $50,000 bond.
