An Ocean View woman has been charged in connection with the embezzlement of over $1 million from her former employer.

While working as a bookkeeper at Dovetail Inc., a high-end interior design company in Bethany Beach, Joan Donald “took advantage of her access to the company’s financial information, as well as the ailing health of Dovetail’s elderly owner,” according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Bank records show that Donald, 54, used Dovetail’s funds to pay for personal expenses, including purchasing vehicles and taking trips to Disney World, a Department of Justice spokesperson said.
