KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Criminal charges have been filed against a former clerk accused of embezzling from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office.
Court records show and sources confirm that the suspect is Marcie Copeland, 47, of Decatur. A felony count of embezzlement by an agent or trustee of more than $20,000 was filed Wednesday.

The possible crime was discovered in May and Copeland was fired about a week later after an internal investigation.
