It was ultimately determined that Hicks had been using a company credit card and other bank accounts setup by the company to purchase items for herself. Police say she also used company money to pay for her personal credit card bills.
Investigators say her alleged embezzled monies total to nearly $500,000 in losses to the company over years of time.
