A former employee of an Eldon drug company admitted in federal court Tuesday to embezzling nearly $150,000.
Katherine E. Cebuhar, 41, of Olean, waived her right to a grand jury before pleading guilty to four counts of wire fraud in federal court.
Cebuhar was an office manager for Eldon Drug Company, a pharmacy, from April 2014 to March 1, 2017, and stole the money through four fraudulent schemes, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a news release. In one she took cash from the company’s daily receipts and changed records to cover it up, authorities said. She also gave herself unauthorized raises, put personal expenses on business credit cards and used the company’s bank account to pay her personal credit card bill, the release said.
Cebuhar is subject to a sentence of up to 30 years in prison on each count. A sentencing hearing has not been set.
