Bessemer woman indicted for allegedly stealing over $900,000 from employer

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A Birmingham-area office manager was indicted Thursday on theft and tax evasion charges for allegedly stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer, authorities say.

Anntwine Moss, a 49-year-old Bessemer native, was indicted on nine counts—four counts of tax evasion and five counts of wire fraud—by a federal grand jury on Thursday, Sept. 24.

Moss allegedly stole more than $987,375 from Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery from 2006 to 2013 by writing unauthorized checks to herself, using a company credit card for her own use and making unauthorized direct deposits into her bank account, according to the indictment.

She also allegedly filed false tax returns by not reporting the money she stole to the IRS.

Each tax evasion charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and $1 million fine and each wire fraud charge carries a $250,000 fine and 20 years in prison.
