Cartersville Police Capt. Mark Camp said Streetman worked as an officer manager for Telenet Systems. Between June 2012 and February 2014, she reportedly stole at least $585,000 from the company.

Camp said Streetman took the money by recreating paid invoices and writing checks that listed her as the payee for the invoice amounts. She printed 34 forged checks before she was caught.

Telenet Systems became aware of the scheme when Streetman recreated an invoice that had not yet been paid, Camp said. Streetman had worked at the company for 17 years.
