Woman charged with embezzling from medical office

Posted January 13, 2011

— Police on Thursday charged a woman with stealing almost $200,000 from a Goldsboro medical practice.

Deborah Jean Holland, no age or address available, was charged with embezzlement greater than $100,000. She was being held in the Wayne County Jail under a $50,000 bond.

A physician with Goldsboro OB-GYN asked police last month to investigate money missing from the practice. Investigators determined Holland used business credit cards and checks to amass nearly $200,000 in purchases from March 2005 through early October of last year.

Holland was the business manager for the practice until she was fired in October, police said.

    Nope this woman I know from personal experince, has no drug or gambling problems... She thought she was better than everyone around her and she was above the law.She is very manpulative,cruel and not a nice person. I was a victim of her's in the past and this just shows how KARMA will always catch you.
