Sioux Falls woman charged with embezzlement for allegedly stealing $59,000 over 2 years


SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A Sioux Falls woman has been indicted for allegedly stealing almost $59,000 from a local dry cleaning business over two years.

Cynthia Ahlers was charged this week with one count of felony embezzlement.

Sioux Falls police spokesman Sam Clemens tells the Argus Leader ( ) that police were called to one RJ Ries location in July after an employee noticed money was missing.

Clemens says Ahlers was the general manager for all Sioux Falls locations and was responsible for verifying funds and depositing them.

Ahlers was eventually arrested and charged.
