FARGO — A West Fargo woman has been accused of stealing roughly $100,000 from a plumbing company where she worked.

Lisa Michelle Koehmstedt, 51, appeared Friday, Sept. 30, in Cass County District Court on a felony charge of theft. She could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Koehmstedt was an accountant for Riverside Plumbing in Fargo when she allegedly stole the money, according to a criminal complaint. Records given to investigators by Riverside owner Jeremy Johnson suggested the theft happened between July 2020 and June 2022, the complaint said.

A fraud audit showed $96,604 was paid to AT&T, Glitter and Tees, and Seven O One, the complaint said.

Koehmstedt was booked Thursday into the Cass County Jail.
