HAZLEHURST — A 65-year-old Copiah County woman charged with embezzling more than $20,000 from her employer has pleaded guilty.
The Clarion-Ledger reports Linda Reed will remain in jail pending her sentencing hearing in Copiah County Circuit Court next month.
Reed entered her plea yesterday.
She disappeared April 30, 2012, sparking a regional search after her truck was located in a remote spot not far from the I-55 in Copiah County — her phone, purse and glasses left behind.
Five months after her disappearance, Reed was found after a Google search by a co-worker in Texas, where she had relocated.
Reed was charged with three counts of embezzlement from the petty cash fund of Moore’s Fabrications in Gallman, where she had worked since 1999.
