A temporary worker for the H.J. Heinz Co., who told county detectives she was in a “financial bind,” has been charged with stealing more than $12,000 by forging signatures and making unauthorized direct deposits.
Nora J. Marsh, 33, of Bellevue began working as a payroll administrator at the company’s Warrendale location in March 2010, according to court documents. An investigation found that since then, 12 unauthorized direct deposits were made into two accounts owned by Ms. Marsh, and the signatures on two payroll checks had been forged and then deposited into her accounts, court documents state.
Ms. Marsh told detectives with the Allegheny County district attorney’s office that she knew what she did was wrong and that she wouldn’t lie about what she had done.
She was arrested last Tuesday and is charged with theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, access device fraud, unlawful use of a computer, identity theft and forgery.
