A former Red Deer woman charged with theft and attempted theft of almost $100,000 from an oilpatch company reserved her plea in Red Deer court on Wednesday.

Kimberly Michelle McGhee, 39, who now lives in British Columbia, is charged with six counts each of theft and fraud.

She returns to court on Nov. 17 to enter a plea.

Court heard that between Marc. 1, 2004, and June 30, 2004, McGhee is alleged to have stolen about $77,000 in funds that were intended to be paid to Badger Daylighting Inc., which has a Red Deer branch. She is also alleged to have attempted to steal about $19,000.

Badger is North American’s largest oilfield excavation contractor.

The accused is alleged to have worked for a company that collected payments from various firms for work performed by Badger.

The largest payment is alleged to be about $42,000.

Police conducted a lengthy investigation and court heard the accused was difficult to locate because she had moved.

McGhee was released on a recognizance in the sum of $5,000 no cash deposit.
