Bookkeeper accused of embezzling money from Park Jones Realty

Posted: Updated:

Lawton,Okla_A Lawton woman is accused of stealing nearly $2,000 from her former employer. According to an affidavit, Kimberly Vargas had been hired as the book keeper for Parks Jones Realty back in January.

Management told police that she left work one day back in February, and never returned. They say that's when they discovered that Vargas had stolen several checks.

They believe she used some of the money as a down payment on a mobile home. A teller at a local bank recognized Vargas as the woman who had allegedly cashed a few of those stolen checks. Vargas is charged with two counts of embezzlement.
