Minocqua Woman Accused of Embezzlement

11 Jun News

A Minocqua woman is accused of stealing money from Northwoods Animal Hospital.

Just over a year ago, the Minocqua Police Department was notified by the animal hospital about a former employee allegedly embezzling money. A joint investigation discovered more than $30,000 in money taken through excessive pay checks and payments at the service counter.

On Monday, 47 year old Brenda J Wigglesworth was arrested and charged with a single count of theft in a business setting. She is currently being held at the Oneida County Jail.

She made a court appearance via video conference yesterday where Judge Patrick O’Melia set a signature bond at $15,000. A preliminary hearing has been set for July 3.
