Lisbon woman charged with felony theftWAHPETON, N.D. – A Lisbon woman is charged with Class B felony theft after being accused of obtaining more than $100,000 by falsifying delivery statements to Bobcat Co. in Bismarck.
Cheryl Gregor worked as a dispatcher for SOS Brokerage and Express in Wyndmere, a trucking company that delivers for Bobcat. Gregor is suspected of falsifying billing statements from the trucking company to Bobcat through various methods of deception, including submitting duplicate bills and altering load sheets.
Bobcat paid an excess of $100,000 in 2008 to SOS, which used the money for general operations.
Rodney Olmsted, owner of SOS, called the Richland County Sheriff’s Department in January to report the theft after Bobcat notified him of the overbilling.
The money has not been returned to Bobcat. Gregor was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in Richland County District Court on Tuesday.
The Sheriff’s Department declined to comment on a possible motive for the theft.
