A Kingsville woman was arrested Friday in Ohio on suspicion of embezzling funds from a credit union.
Maricella Garza, 37, was arrested following the return of an indictment charging her with embezzling funds from the Kingsville Community Federal Credit Union from Aug. 28, 2009, to July 9, 2010, according to the indictment.
After her arrest, Garza appeared in federal court that afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sharon L. Ovington.
According to the indictment, Garza was an employee of the credit union and embezzled about $30,555.
If convicted, Garza faces as many as 30 years in prison and as much as a $1 million fine. A bond hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Ohio.
