LOVINGTON, NEW MEXICO - A former Lovington school employee is facing charges of embezzling more than $15,000 from the school district.

Lovington police say earlier this month, 43-year-old Jamie Ann Moore turned herself in then posted a $2,000 bond.

Officers tell NewsWest 9, Moore is facing 13 separate charges.

One count of embezzling under five hundred dollars, eleven counts of embezzling over $2,500 dollars, and one count of thief of identity.

You may remember several weeks ago when we told you about the original police report.

Officers claim Jamie Moore wrote a total of 10 fake checks since May while working in the school district's central office.

She allegedly used a fake name, address, and social security number for the checks making them out to an Ann Moore, when in reality, there was no such person working there.

In total, all the checks add up to $15,790 and some change.
