Faces charges in Dawson County and Gainesville

POSTED: March 27, 2013 12:02 a.m.

A Dawsonville woman has been charged in connection with the embezzlement of more than $27,000 from a Gainesville business.

According to authorities, Amanda Kaye Phillips, 31, reportedly stole 52 blank checks from Bulldawg Collision, where she had worked for nearly a decade.

Investigators said she then wrote the checks out to cash, endorsed them with her signature and deposited them into her personal bank account.

“She deposited 18 of the checks at her bank here in Dawsonville,” said Dawson County Sheriff’s Investigator Jarrett Simpson.

Phillips faces dozens of charges in Dawson and Hall counties.

In Dawson, those include three felony counts of forgery in the first degree, one count of felony theft by taking and 15 misdemeanor counts of forgery in the fourth degree. Gainesville police are charging her with fourth-degree and first-degree forgery.

Dawson County Detention Center records show Phillips was released after posting $10,200 bond Thursday, the day of her arrest.
