FAIRBANKS- A North Pole woman, accused of embezzling thousands of dollars from her employers, pleaded not guilty this afternoon in Fairbanks Superior Court.

38-year-old Theresa Hollens is charged with theft, scheme to defraud, and falsifying business records.

The Alaska Bureau of Investigation's Financial Crimes Unit confirmed the allegations, and later arrested Hollens on an outstanding warrant.

Hollens is currently being held at Fairbanks Correctional Center; her bail is set at 20 thousand dollars.
