A Lake Charles woman is accused of stealing from her employer.

According to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, Courtney R. Miller, 30, was arrested after Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched on Jan. 8 after receiving a complaint from a local business about the alleged theft.
