A 57-year-old Jasonville woman, accused of theft from her former employer, has been under investigation by the Indiana State Police (ISP) since last November.
Gail A. Ray will be charged with two counts of theft, both class D felonies, when she appears for an initial hearing in Greene Superior Court on Feb. 11.
The Indiana State Police received a complaint from Bruce Borders, owner of Borders Insurance in Jasonville, on Nov. 8. ISP Det. Brad S. Stille began an investigation.
In an affidavit filed with the court, Stille explained Ray is a former employee of the insurance agency who knew how to upload payments to insurance carriers whenever the agency would receive money from their customers.
Borders explained to Stille that when these payments are uploaded, money is transferred from the agency to an insurance carrier.
Ray is suspected of uploading a payment for her own policy without making payment to the agency. Another employee of the agency discovered it and confronted Ray. She agreed to a payment plan to repay the agency.
After the payment plan was arranged, Ray allegedly then uploaded two more months of premiums due on her son's policy.
Borders claims these two insurance premiums for the son's policy were paid to the carrier out of his agency's funds, but his office did not receive payment, and so his company is at a financial loss.
Stille spoke to the son who reportedly said he paid for his insurance by providing money to his mother who in turn would pay the agency.
The case against Ray was filed Jan. 25 and a warrant was issued for her arrest. She was taken into custody, booked into jail and released the same day after posting an $800 cash bond.
