Iowa City police have charged a woman with first-degree theft after she allegedly misappropriated more than $141,000 from her employer.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Kimberly Kurka, address unknown, was charged Aug. 23 after a forensic fraud examination of Kurka’s actions concluded that she had misappropriated the funds.

According to the complaint, Kurka worked as manager of payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and business related to the trust and operating accounts of her employer. The complaint said she had access to online accounts and passwords at the business.

Kurka allegedly misappropriated money through many different processes, including allegedly writing herself additional paychecks, inflating her payroll, and stealing cash payments from clients, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, a forensic fraud examination showed Kurka’s alleged actions to have started no later than 2008 and to have caused misappropriations in excess of $141,000.

Kurka is charged with first-degree theft, a Class-C felony.
