Prosecutors in Harris County say that an accounts clerk at a Houston-area window coverings company spent nearly $6 million that they say she embezzled from her employer.
She may have cost many of her co-workers their jobs, prosecutors said.
Marcia Sinclair is accused of depositing checks meant for the company into her own account. Prosecutors said she had a $250,000 tab with Neiman Marcus and more than $100,000 at a furniture store. She shopped for clothes in London and had 61 of pairs of designer sunglasses, they said.
Sinclair worked for Gulf Coast Window Covering for 16 years.
She's in custody under a $12 million bond, officials said.
