DIXON – An Amboy woman is free on her own recognizance after being charged with stealing what is thought to be about $50,000 in cash from the Woodhaven Association at Woodhaven Lakes, a private campground in Sublette.

Donna Unrath, 54, the association’s now former finance manager, is accused of stealing cash over the course of about 7 years, from April 2015 to November, by moving items around to make it look like some things were funded when they were not, Lee County State’s Attorney Charley Boonstra said.

A forensic audit is under way to determine the exact amount of the theft, he said.

Unrath was charged April with theft of more than $10,000 but less than $100,000, which carries a possible 3 to 7 years in prison, plus restitution.

She has a pretrial hearing Aug. 25 in Lee County Court, and is represented by Dixon attorney Paul Whitcombe.
