Clare County Woman Accused of Embezzling From Moose Lodge

A Clare County woman is now charged with embezzling more than $30,000. 

Melissa Washburn is accused of stealing from the Clare Moose Lodge.

Washburn worked there as a bartender and a bar manager.

Court documents show at least $37,000 unaccounted for and close to $7,000 of that money comes from bank overdraft fees.

The embezzlement charge is a felony and she could face up to 10 years in jail and a fine of $15,000.

Washburn has bonded out and will be back in court for a probable cause conference next week.
