Bookkeeper Faces Embezzlement Trial

The former bookkeeper of two Santa Fe Springs corporations was charged Friday with embezzling more than $579,000 from her employers to maintain a lavish life style that included a new home and a luxury car.

Lorrinda Jayne Barlow, 27, is scheduled to surrender Wednesday for arraignment in Los Angeles Municipal Court on two counts of grand theft and 11 counts of forgery.

Barlow allegedly embezzled the money by forging more than 100 checks drawn on the accounts of the two corporations, Lee Deane Products Inc. and Raintime Inc.
