The former treasurer/clerk for the Village of Webberville has been charged with embezzlement.
52-year-old Jaymee Hord was charged following a seven-month investigation by the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office, which included a financial forensic audit by an outside firm.
Hord, of Owosso, was charged by the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office with one count of embezzlement between $50,000-$100,000 - a 15-year felony.
The Sheriff’s Office says back in March of 2022, some irregularities were discovered during a routine financial audit. The Village President notified the village attorney, who then notified the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office to begin a criminal investigation. The completed investigation was sent to the Prosecutor’s Office for review on October 11th.
Hord was arraigned on Friday in 55th District Court and is free on a personal recognizance bond. Her next appearance in court is November 1st.
