After an internal audit revealed some discrepancies that could not be justified, the Groesbeck based Insurance Licensing Services of America, had no choice but to bring theft charges against their human resources officer, Lorraine Smith.
Lorraine Smith, 45, is charged with theft over $1,500, but under $20,000, in connection with what an arrest warrant affidavit says was a series of thefts from Insurance Licensing Services of America in Groesbeck between February 2015 and July 2015.
The amount taken totaled just more than $2,000, authorities said.
Smith is no longer employed by ILSA, which provides services across the country, authorities said.
The owner of the insurance agency, Groesbeck City Councilwoman Arlene Taveras, reported the theft on Dec. 3, 2015 after the internal audit was completed.
