More charges filed in Watford City embezzlement case

WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) — More charges have been filed against a Watford City woman accused of embezzlement.

Thirty-eight-year-old Hannah Lloyd previously was accused of embezzling more than $57,000 from the Watford City Park District while working for an accounting firm. She's now alleged to have stolen about $50,000 from the city's golf course and about $56,600 from Rink Construction.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Lloyd faces six felony theft and forgery charges. She could enter pleas at a March 15 hearing.

Lloyd's former employer reported her to police in December after the park district approached her with payroll issues.

Park Board President Justin Johnsrud says an audit is ongoing to determine the total amount of money missing from the park district.
