Woman charged with embezzlement

A Lenexa woman is charged with stealing at least $143,000 in an alleged embezzlement scheme that authorities say lasted three years.

Cheryl D. McAnally, 50, posted $25,000 bond today on three counts of theft and four counts of forgery.

Johnson County prosecutors charged her Thursday, alleging she took $100,000 or more from Overland Park Regional Medical Staff from February 2007 to August 2010.

She is also charged with forging doctors' names for a total of almost $17,000 in checks and involving banks for a total of at least $26,000.
