WA woman stole $1.9m from law firm

A WOMAN has been charged with stealing more than $1.9 million from the Perth law firm that employed her.

WA police say the Kalamunda woman was a legal practitioner at the city firm when she allegedly stole the money from a solicitor’s trust account, including funds held for distribution to deceased estates, between 2013 and 2017.

Major Fraud Squad detectives have charged the 45-year-old woman with nine counts of stealing as a servant and she’s due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court on March 12.
