Boardman woman arraigned in embezzlement case

A Boardman woman accused of stealing about $175,000 from her former employer remains free on bond after her arraignment Tuesday.

Lori Lamb, 50, is facing a felony theft charge. She was an office manager for Morris Drain Service on Simon Road.

Lamb was indicted June 30 and turned herself in to Boardman police Friday, where she was booked and released on summons to appear at her arraignment.

Her lawyer, Atty. Gerald Ingram, recommended that Lamb be released on her own recognizance because she has no prior criminal record, raised three boys in the area, is a homeowner and has significant ties to the community.

Prosecutors argued that Lamb should be given a $10,000-10 percent bond, which was granted.

The case was assigned to Judge Lou A. D’Apolito, and a pretrial hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday.

In April, one of the owners of Morris Drain Service filed a report with police that stated he caught Lamb stealing petty cash and that Lamb quit abruptly in February.

The owner alleges in police reports that Lamb took money in several ways, such as padding her weekly paycheck with an additional $200 to $300 and paying her own credit cars from the business account at a cost of about $2,000 a month.

Police said Lamb cashed checks at various banks and had several bank accounts.

Once found guilty Lamb should be forced to sell her house,to pay back Morris Drain Service.

It is always the business owner who is the true victim in cases like this.

What happened to working hard and staying out of trouble to get what you want? Why do all these people have to steal?

Lori Lamb may be the victim in this case . We should not jump to conclusions . Our evaluating the benefit to our economy from that extra cash flow she generated may just negate any need for punative measures .
