Boulder: worker steals $760K from her boss

1 Feb

A bookkeeper accused of stealing $760,000 from a Boulder company is booked in Jefferson County Jail after police arrested her on suspicion of a felony theft charge.

Michelle Lynn Shelton, 40, is accused of stealing from her employer, Highline Financial.

Boulder police obtained a warrant on Friday for her arrest, and investigators located Shelton at her Westminster home later that day.

Boulder detectives launched their investigation in December 2010 after another accountant, who was filling in while Shelton was off from work, discovered what appeared to be a large amount of money being transferred to two separate personal bank accounts, according to police.
