Amanda Marie Boling, 30, was arrested Sunday for allegedly embezzling more than $130,000 from a local dentist. Boling worked for Kevin Fleming, a dentist with a practice on South Fairmont Street, for 12 years as his office manager and bookkeeper.
She is accused of using the practice’s payroll to pay herself roughly $137,000 during the last two years. Boling allegedly used “employee reimbursements” to pay herself and avoid paying income taxes on the money.
Detective Heather Metcalf of the Lodi Police Department lead the investigation on Boling. Anyone who has information on Boling’s activities is urged to call Metcalf at the Lodi Police Department.
Boling will be arraigned Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. at Lodi Superior Court. If convicted, Boling could spend up to three years in prison, plus an additional year if the amount taken is found to be more than $65,000.
