TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Mike's Limo and Mike's Moving employee is facing federal charges for embezzling over $125,000 from the businesses. 

The story was first reported by the Tallahassee Democrat. 

According to documents from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, a U.S. state attorney has charged Jennie Harris with scheme to defraud and fraudulent wire communications. 

The documents, filed on Aug. 7, allege Jennie Harris embezzled money from the Tallahassee businesses between December 2015 and September 2017.

Harris worked at both Mike's Limo and Mike's Moving and was responsible for processing payments from the businesses' clients. In the role, documents say Harris would process and refund transactions made via credit and debit card by customers.

However, prosecutors say used her position to embezzle money by fraudulently processing refunds on legitimate sale transactions to debit and credit card accounts she owned. 

They Harris hid the deeds by destroying the point-of-sale reports that showed the refunds. In total, Harris is accused of embezzling $125,200.75 from the companies. 

Documents say Harris also wired more than $1,000 to herself from Mike's Moving.
