Escondido Police have arrested a woman accused of embezzling $500,000 from her employer, on multiple felony charges.
Sheila Jo Jackson, a 46-year-old resident of Temecula, has been booked into the Vista Detention Facility on a breadth of serious felony charges including embezzlement by employee, forgery, grand theft and identity theft, said Escondido Police Lieutenant Ed Varso.
The employer notified Escondido Police when she discovered suspicious activity on her account that spanned several years, according to Lt. Varso.
Police detectives worked with the employer for their investigation, which connected Jackson to the theft.
Jackson is currently being held on a bail of $1.1 million, according to Escondido Police.
