An employee for a Cary store is wanted after she was accused of stealing more than $10,000 from the store through her payroll system, court records show.

Kristen J. Delboccio, 38, of Wauconda, was charged with computer fraud in which money was obtained in excess of $1,000, a Class 3 felony, and theft under $10,000, a Class 3 felony.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court states that Delboccio had control of the payroll software for Appliance Marshall Repair, located at 395 Cary Algonquin Road in Cary.

Delboccio allegedly created a fake employee named “Del, K” in the payroll system.

Fraudulent hours were then logged for the wrong employee, the complaint said.

The fake employee’s direct deposit account was set up to go to Delboccio’s bank account.

Delboccio also wrote himself an additional paycheck, due December 10.

Delboccio collected over $10,600 from fraudulent payslips she prepared for herself, the complaint said.

The scam is said to have occurred from December 10th to December 29th.

The case was investigated by the Cary Police Department.

Court records show charges were filed on Friday and an active warrant remains for Delboccio’s arrest.
