IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa City police say a 35-year-old woman stole more than $141,000 from her employer over a two-year period.

According to the criminal complaint, Kimberly Kate Kurka worked for a law office in Iowa City managing payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable and business related to the trust and operating accounts.

Police say an investigation determined that Kurka was misappropriating money by writing herself extra paychecks, inflating her payroll and stealing cash payments from clients. 

They say the thefts began no later than 2008 and continued through 2010.

Kurka is charged with first degree theft.
