Employee charged with fraud

TAHLEQUAH — Prosecutors have charged a Tahlequah woman accused of fraudulently giving out discounts where she was employed earlier this year.

Allison Grace Sisco, 28, is charged with felony embezzlement. Prosecutors allege Sisco, on Aug. 7, fraudulently appropriated more than $1,700 by taking cash and discounts belonging to Stage, where she was employed. She is accused of giving the discounts to her “husband, boyfriend and friend.”

Tahlequah Officer Luke Hixon investigated the allegations, according to court documents.

Embezzlement is punishable by up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, plus restitution.
