A White Oak East woman was arrested Friday after police said she embezzled over $150,000 from locally-owned Oak Hills Carton Company.

Kimberly McCullah, 60, was indicted by the Hamilton County Grand Jury on Tuesday, according to court records. She is charged with telecommunications fraud, tampering with records and theft.

Police said McCullah used her position as the office manager to manipulate the company payroll system to issue herself additional pay and bonuses.

According to court documents, McCullah participated in these criminal acts between January of 2017 and March of 2020, taking more than $150,000 but less than $750,000 from Oak Hills Carton Company. 

Oak Hills Carton Company could not be immediately reached Saturday for comment.

Located in Carthage, the locally-owned packaging company has been manufacturing folding cartons, bar soap packaging, air filter frame die cuts and other paperboard packaging since 1947, according to the company’s website.

A warrant went out for McCullah’s arrest on Tuesday, and she was arrested Friday, according to court records. McCullah was released on bond Friday.
