A Wisconsin woman says she accepts responsibility for embezzling nearly $452,000 to fuel her opioid addiction and her jewelry business.

Larmon embezzled the money from her latest employer, Greenfield’s O’Malley Investments. Court records say she embezzled the money over her three years working there as office manager, WISN reported.

She ran a jewelry business as she worked for the investment company, and used her boss’s credit card to make hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry purchases, according to WISN.

The reason Larmon began embezzling the money stems from her opioid addiction, according to Fox 6.

O’Malley Investments sued Larmon, and the judge issued a court order to prevent Larmon from continuing to sell jewelry.
