Mohawk employee charged with stealing $766,000 from company for personal use
CALHOUN, Ga. —
Calhoun Police have arrested and charged a woman with defrauding Mohawk Industries out of three-quarters of a million dollars.
Chief Garry Moss says 54-year-old Deborah Busby of Fairmount, Georgia faces 51 charges of financial transaction card fraud, and 51 counts of identity fraud.
Moss says she used her her position at Mohawk Industries to convert funds for her own use.
Moss says the four month long investigation began after employee’s uncovered discrepancies in several Mohawk accounts.
Detectives examined several hundred documents during the investigation, and interviewed several people before determining Busby had acted alone in the thefts.
“It is alleged that Busby had taken approximately $766,000.00 over a three year span, and used the money to pay personal bills, take lavish vacations and purchase various items for personal use.” Captain Tony Pyle.
NewsChannel 9 is working to learn whether Busby is still employed at Mohawk. We are awaiting a call back from the company's public information officer.
