HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — The former executive director of Macatawa Area Express was arraigned on a felony embezzlement charge Tuesday.

Linda LeFebre was charged with embezzlement of more than $20,000, but less than $50,000. Court documents say she manipulated the MAX payroll to be paid for more hours than she worked and used a company credit card to pay for items for herself.

The documents also show that police said she admitted to misusing the credit card.

LeFebre was put on leave in March when an investigation into the alleged embezzlement began before she resigned in April.

Investigators going through the last five years of MAX’s financial records previously said it appeared only one employee was involved.

The next court date is scheduled for 11 a.m. on June 26.
