Van Buren Woman Embezzled $113,000 From Business, Police Say


Tabatha Bowen was arrested on Friday after police say she embezzled $113,000 from a Van Buren business.

The victim reported the theft in February after reviewing bank statements and seeing that money was missing from the business’s account, said Det. Jonathan Wear with Van Buren police.

After looking into the bank records, investigators were able to determine that Bowen had been embezzling from the business since April 2011, Wear said.

Bowen was writing checks to herself from the business account, according to police. She was arrested on suspicion of 122 counts of 2nd degree felony forgery and felony theft of property.

Bowen was booked into the Crawford County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
