Flooring company ex-employee pleads guilty in embezzling case

BRECKENRIDGE – Christel Anderson-Hayden pleaded guilty in district court Monday to charges filed in connection with the theft of money from her former employer, Silverthorne’s Intermountain Flooring.

Anderson-Hayden, 28, of Dillon, is the daughter of longtime Breckenridge Police Officer Steve Anderson.

She will be sentenced April 29 for two felony counts, one for forgery and a second for criminal attempt theft.

Anderson-Hayden was originally charged with 14 counts; all but two were dismissed.

For part of 2002, she worked as a bookkeeper at Intermountain Flooring, where she allegedly stole cash and wrote a series of unauthorized checks to herself from the company account, according to court documents. Anderson-Hayden reportedly took almost $21,000 in cash and forged checks, though store owner Scott Stephens said late last year the loss of funds ended up costing him more than $40,000 in late fees on accounts and other related expenses.
