Ex-utility cashier accused of embezzling $435,000

COLORADO SPRINGS ” A woman who worked for Colorado Springs Utilities for 35 years has been arrested on charges of embezzling more than $435,000.

Donna Inzer, 69, surrendered to police Thursday on a felony theft charge. Her phone number was unlisted and it wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.

Inzer, a former head cashier for the city-owned utility, is accused of taking money from payments and then altering daily balance sheets so the missing money would not be detected in bank deposit records.

Investigators said the thefts took place between December 2003 and February.

Authorities began investigating in February when a commercial customer said it had not been credited for a payment. Utilities spokesman Steve Berry declined to comment on how the thefts went undetected for more than three years.
