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. 

During the investigation, authorities said detectives discovered Miller had used over $950 in company funds to pay personal bills between October and December 2012.
