An Exira woman was arrested this (Thursday) morning on a charge of 2nd degree theft, in connection with the theft of more than $5,000 from her employer. Audubon County Sheriff Todd Johnson reports 43-year old Sherri Lynn Jorgensen was taken into custody at around 8:30-a.m.

Johnson says the charges stem from an investigation to money allegedly taken from an unidentified Exira business, where Jorgensen was an employee. The funds were allegedly misappropriated over the course of the past year.

The incident remains under investigation. The sheriff says Jorgensen made an appearance before the magistrate, and was released from custody. Her preliminary hearing was set for September 19th.
