A former worker with the Monroe County Road Commission is facing charges she stole tens of thousands of dollars over a 15 year period.

65-year-old JoAnna Aichler was arraigned Monday on one count of embezzlement.

Authorities say the 23-year road commission bookkeeper was fired earlier this year after missing funds were discovered.

Police say she stole $90,000 over several years.

She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
