police tape

A Mid-Michigan woman is accused of taking millions of dollars from a client.

The investigation into Lorie Stuer began when employees at Bandit Industries reported a fraud, Isabella County Sheriff Michael Main said.

Stuer is an owner of Stoney Creek Trucking, which does shipping for Bandit.

During a five-month investigation, detectives found Stuer had falsified invoices and fraudulently billed Brandit for shipping going back as far as 2011.

Investigators believe Steur took $3,653,000 or more from Bandit.

She was charged in Isabella County Court with nine felonies; three counts of false pretenses $1,000,000 or more, three counts of using a computer to commit a crime and three counts of obtaining signatures with intent to fraud.
