Staff Writer

A 45-year-old Clay County woman is accused of stealing more than $8,200 from the West Point business where she used to work.

Susan Ree Makamson was arrested Thursday and charged with embezzling $8,279 from George's Tires where she worked up until late last year, West Point Police Det. Ramirez Ivy said.

Makamson worked at the business for five years, but management started noticing some "discrepancies" going back up to a year before she left, said Ivy, who began his investigation about two weeks ago.

She is being held on $10,000 bond.
