Woman pleads not guilty to embezzling from employer


PRIMGHAR, Iowa | A Calumet, Iowa, woman has pleaded not guilty to stealing more than $24,000 from her employer.

Jamie Riedemann, 32, entered her written plea Wednesday in O'Brien County District Court to three counts each of second-degree theft and credit card fraud and single counts of first-degree theft and tampering with records.

According to court documents, from January 2014 through August 2016 Riedemann turned in fraudulent time cards that resulted in overpayment to her of more than $10,000 from Calumet Carriers, a Calumet trucking company that employed Riedemann as the business office manager.

Riedemann is also accused of using company credit cards and checks and writing company checks to herself to pay for nearly $12,500 in personal expenses, including purchase of clothing, meals, groceries and electrical work to a property she owned. She also spent more than $1,800 in company money to buy computers for the City of Calumet and the Calumet Fire Department, court documents said.
