A former employee is accused of stealing $1,000,000 from a La Salle business

A crucial part of running a business is having employees you can trust. A former employee of J.B. Contracting in La Salle is accused of stealing more than $1,000,000 over the course of six years.

Connie Steinbach of Oglesby turned herself in at La Salle County Sheriff’s Department Tuesday afternoon.  The investigation began on October 27 after someone from the construction company went to the La Salle Police. Investigators believe between January 2008 to October 2014, Steinbach wrote company checks for personal use and changed company records to make it seem as if the money went to legitimate customers.

Steinbach was charged with two counts of Class X felony theft and was released after posting bond.

Police say their investigation isn’t over because they’re trying to determine where the money was spent.
