OREM — A woman who police say was forging the signatures of former customers, costing her business tens of thousands of dollars, has been arrested for investigation of more than 400 crimes.

Vicki Sue Bennett, 48, of Orem, was booked into the Utah County Jail on Sunday for investigation of 283 counts of forgery, 176 counts of identity fraud and theft.

Police were called to MCR Recycling, 550 N. Geneva Road, where Bennett was a former employee, according to a police affidavit. Officers learned that Bennett had created 283 false receipts from the names of 176 customers, resulting in $66,570 in losses to the company, the affidavit states.

The owners compiled two flash drives worth of surveillance video for police to look at.

“The most compelling of which is from a motion activated camera placed within a cabinet where the money bag was stored. The camera is activated and captures Vicki taking money from the bag and concealing it within her sweatshirt sleeve. Another motion activated camera located near Vicki’s desk shows Vicki reach into her sleeve and place the money inside of her purse,” according to the affidavit.
