An arrest warrant has been issued for Marjorie Pettway one day after she was indicted for stealing $21,500 of tax payer money. The former Market Lubbock Inc. employee is accused of embezzling money from the organization.
The DA's Office says she was allegedly buying and canceling plane tickets and then turning in the bogus receipts for reimbursements. Sources say, Pettway's attorney works in Austin. Pettway is expected to turn herself into authorities there Thursday.
If convicted of the felony, Pettway faces 20 years in prison.
