A Surrey woman was arrested this week in connection with the alleged defrauding of a White Rock company.

Const. Janelle Shoihet said the Clayton-area resident was taken into custody Monday, following the disappearance of approximately $44,000 over the course of nine months last year, between March 1 and Nov. 30.

“Allegedly, (the accused) wrote cheques from the company account and paid them to herself, but there weren’t any associated invoices,” Shoihet said.

Karen Ann Chura, 53, appeared in court Tuesday on charges of fraud, forgery and using forged cheques. She was to return Thursday on an application to vary bail conditions.
