Accused embezzler turns herself in

Kelly Denise Ollice came to court Thursday to turn herself in.

Ollice was charged with embezzling $41,294.72 from her employer, The Woodshed, in Adair.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Ollice, 32, of Big Cabin, embezzled the money between April 1, 2012 and April 1.

Two employees of The Woodshed called the Adair Police Department to report witnessing Ollice stealing money from the cash register.

Officer Glenn Parman, of the Adair Police Department, met with the two employees and reviewed documents showing excessive suspended sales and voided transactions on Ollice's register.

Parman stated in his report he viewed the security video showing Ollice taking money from the register and placing it in her pocket. After evidence was examined and reports were filed, Parman confronted Ollice at which time she filled out a voluntary statement confessing to embezzling the money. The evidence and the statement was turned over to the district attorney's office at which time an official warrant was issued.

Assistant District Attorney Marny Hill informed the court that Ollice was in court to turn herself in and was prepared to post bond.

She appeared before Judge Rebecca Gore in the Mayes County District Court. Gore explained that the sentence imposed could be up to life in jail. The case was continued until the preliminary hearing sounding docket July 11. Bond was set at $10,000 and Ollice was remanded to the custody of the Mayes County Jail.

Gore told Ollice the commission of this felony violated the terms of her probation, resulting in a motion to revoke her existing suspended sentence.

The seven-year probation was following charges of manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance. Bond on the motion to revoke was set at $10,000 for a total of $20,000.

Inman Bail Bonds was present to escort Ollice to jail.

Gore warned Ollice that attempting to run from the bondsman would be considered escape and would increase the severity of her sentence.
