OSAGE BEACH, Mo. - A former Re-Max employee has been charged with stealing more than $100,000 from the company.
According to the probable cause statement, the owners of Re-Max found Elizabeth Sweesy stealing from them by using a business credit card.
Police said Sweesy had been taking the money from 2012 to 2016.
Sweesy and her attorney sent officers a statement saying she knew she wasn't allowed to use the company credit card for personal gains, but did so without the knowledge of the owners.

Officers said the grand total of money stolen was $119,837.84.
Sweesy is charged with over two dozen felony charges in the case.
