ST. CLOUD — A Sauk Rapids woman has pleaded guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from her employer over a three-and-half year span.

49-year-old Elizabeth “Betty” Benoit admitted to stealing just under $59-thousand from October 2007 to February 2010.

According to the criminal complaint, Benoit was employed by Midwest Coin Concepts and Total Recreation. She also did bookkeeping work for an affiliated company called Central Gaming Services.

An audit of Central Gaming’s books showed Benoit issued checks to herself and also to Wells Fargo and Capital One for her own credit card payments. Records show Benoit admitted to an investigator that she took the money for personal use and without permission.

Benoit has pleaded guilty to all six felony charges of theft and will ask for a lesser sentence then the presumptive 21 months in prison.

She’ll be sentenced in Stearns County District Court November 10th.
