Deputies: Dunedin woman stole $27,000 from employer

LARGO — A Dunedin woman is accused of embezzling about $27,000 from her employer over a three-year span.

Tina Marie Foster, 39, of 1763 Main St., No. 146, was arrested by a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office detective Thursday morning on charges of scheme to defraud and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Foster, who worked for TSI Inc. in unincorporated Largo, made personal purchases on a company credit card and transferred funds from a company checking account to various credit cards or accounts that belonged to her, according to arrest reports.

Between November 2007 and August 2010, Foster racked up more than $3,600 on the credit card and siphoned another $23,400 from the company's bank account, the reports show.

She was an office assistant for the commercial heating, ventilating and air conditioning company, according to reports.

Foster also goes by the names Tina Arthur and Tina McMillin, according to court records. She was released from the county jail Thursday after posting $15,000 bail.

Pinellas court records show she was sentenced to six months in jail in 1996 after violating her probation on a battery on a law enforcement officer conviction. Also in 1996, she was convicted of obtaining property with a worthless check.

She also has a possession of oxycodone case pending, stemming from an arrest in October.
