A Mitchell County woman has been accused of embezzling from a Girl Scout Troop.
38-year-old Jennifer H. Nilges of Osage was arrested February 15 on charges of misappropriation of funds and ongoing criminal conduct. Both charges are felonies.
On February 3, the Osage Police Department was notified of money missing from a Girl Scout Troop account. An investigation allegedly found that Nilges had used the money to buy personal items. Approximately $1,500 was taken from the account.
The Osage Police Department says Nilges is being held in the Mitchell County Jail on a $2,500 cash-only bond.
