Woman Charged with Market Lubbock Inc. Embezzlement Case

Her name is Marjorie Pettway and she used to work for the Visitors and Conventions Bureau in Lubbock, a subsidiary of Market Lubbock Inc. Pettway was the Director of Convention and Travel and Industry sales.

A grand jury indicted her on Tuesday for felony theft of $21,500. The district attorney's office says top notch fraud auditors found paper trails linking Pettway to theft of your tax money. Their findings were that Pettway was allegedly buying and canceling plane tickets. Then turning in the bogus receipts for reimbursements.

"The county district attorney's office and other interties I mentioned are not going to stand for any kind of fraud or misappropriation of citizen paid funds," said Will Boyles, Assistant District Attorney.

Boyles says a warrant will be issued on Wednesday for Pettway's arrest. Pettway could be facing up to 20 years in prison, however, Boyles says Pettway has no prior felony convictions. So, there's a chance she could receive probation.
