York woman allegedly embezzled $100K from her own company
A York owner of a York County construction business allegedly embezzled more than $100,000 from her company over a period of six years, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said in a news release Thursday, Feb. 1, that Wendi E. Detter, 44, of York, embezzled the money from YCP Inc., a construction and excavation business in York County, between January 2010 and June 2016.
Detter had been the president and part owner of the company, the release states.
The company is located at 1550 Oak Lane, Dover Township, according to its website.
Embezzling: According to federal court information, Detter used her position to access financial accounts and records to embezzle more than $100,000 for her personal use.
In order to conceal the embezzlement, she made false entries in the company accounting software, which she maintained as part of her job duties, the release states.
She issued YCP Inc. checks payable to herself and to cash, records state.
Detter is charged with wire fraud.
According to federal records, Detter signed a plea agreement in early January, which was signed by the assistant U.S. attorney on Tuesday, Jan. 30.
A hearing on the plea agreement is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 7.
