Woman, 61, suspected of embezzling $850,000 from Lake Tahoe business

Pamela Jean Kircher

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — A Lake Tahoe woman was arrested this week on suspicion of embezzling more than $850,000 from a local business, authorities said.

Detectives on Thursday arrested Pamela Jean Kircher, 61, of Carnelian Bay, Calif., after an investigation that began in late 2014, according to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office.

Kircher most recently worked as a housekeeper at various locations throughout Incline Village, according to WCSO.

“Victims became suspicious of Kircher late last year and contacted the Sheriff’s Office to investigate,” authorities said.

Detectives suspect she stole more than $850,000 from an “undisclosed business” over a seven-year period.

When asked Friday what the business was, WCSO Lt. Jeff Clark said since the business is private, the name is not for public record.

Kircher was booked into Washoe County Jail Thursday on charges of embezzlement, theft and falsifying Accounts.

According to WCSO, detectives are concerned that there may be additional victims.

Anyone who believes they may have been a victim of Kircher, or who may have information, may contact the WCSO Detective Division at 775-328-3320 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
