Virginia resident Anita Ambler was convicted Friday of charges related to more than $1.3 million embezzled from Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort, where she worked as a bookkeeper, U.S. attorney William Ihlenfeld II announced.

Ms. Ambler, 49, of Reva, Va., was found guilty of 11 counts of mail fraud, 10 counts of wire fraud and four counts of transacting in criminal proceeds, according to Mr. Ihlenfeld, the top federal prosecutor for northern West Virginia.

His office said in a news release that Ms. Ambler embezzled funds from 2005 through 2010 from a Horsemen's Association account maintained by Mountaineer in Chester, W.Va.

In addition to possible prison time, Ms. Ambler must forfeit real estate in Reva, Va., and a Dodge Nitro, both purchased with proceeds from the scheme.
