Jolene Chesnut, 61, surrendered Thursday to the sheriff’s office and has been released on bond.
She is accused of committing two counts of embezzlement while employed as a legal assistant to Durant attorney Mark Morrison. Chesnut had been reported missing last week.
According to a probable-cause affidavit by District Attorney Investigator Sam Hernandez, the embezzlement was discovered after Chesnut’s disappearance.
She is accused of embezzling more than $80,000 from an estate account, plus $30,100 from a law firm trust account.
In other crimes, Durant Police Sgt. Jim Smarr investigated a burglary earlier this week in the 100 block of West Pine Street. David Johnson said a television, DVD player, guitar, amplifier and speakers were stolen.
On Tuesday, Bryan County Sheriff’s Deputy John Hoffpauir recovered the stolen property at a Todd Circle residence, according to the report.
Jason Paul Farrell, 29, was arrested and charged with knowingly concealing stolen property.
