SHARP COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Sharp County police arrested a woman after she used her company credit card to rack up thousands of dollars in personal purchases.

Police say Betty Roark quit her job after her boss caught her using a company credit card. That incident wasn't reported and Roark was paying restitution for $10,000 she spent.

But after Roark quit, discrepancies in the bookkeeping showed she'd actually taken about $57,000.

Roark was booked into the Sharp County Jail where she was later released on her recognizance.
