Marshals arrested an East Canton woman Tuesday on charges that she stole $312,000 over five years from a Jackson Township doctor’s office where she worked.
Jenny R. Harter Morales faces charges of telecommunications fraud, aggravated theft, grand theft and three counts of forgery. The charges are second-, third- and fourth-degree felonies.
According to Jackson Township police, Harter stole from Partners in Family medical practice. The Canton Repository reported she worked there as the office manager. Contacted on Thursday, the medical practice declined comment.
The Repository reported the practice contacted police in February while Harter was on vacation. Another employee found discrepancies in financial records while Harter was away.
Harter is scheduled for arraignment in Stark County Common Pleas Court on Friday.
