BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- This week, Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney Briney Welborn filed felony charges of stealing against Natalie Metcalf.
A former employee of the county collector's office, Metcalf allegedly had been taking money in various amounts from the office from 2001 to 2003. According to the complaint filed by Welborn in Circuit Court Division II on Wednesday, Welborn believes Metcalf stole a total of $48,647.93 over a three-year period.
Bond was set at $30,000, which Metcalf was able to meet.
Metcalf is scheduled to appear in court again July 1 for a preliminary hearing where she will appear with her attorney C.H. Parsons.
