An Eagle Lake woman is facing a felony theft charge after she was accused of stealing from her employer.

Mankato Police began the investigation in September, after an employee of a local real estate company reported that a former employee, Nicole Heitner, charged her utility bills to the company credit card, and also made unauthorized purchases on another card.

One victim also accused Heitner of stealing Amazon gift cards from his desk, totally more than $1,300.

According to the criminal complaint, the thefts totaled just under $2,000.
