May 5, 2021 – A Lethbridge woman has been charged with multiple theft charges after stealing half a million dollars from her employer. The Lethbridge Police Service Economic Crimes Unit (ECU) has concluded the investigation which began in 2018.

Police say the investigation began when the woman’s employer, the University of Lethbridge, contacted Lethbridge Police after detecting a potential fraud through their internal processes.  Donna Court, 57, allegedly used her position with the university to falsify records and conceal the theft of more than $500,000 over a period of a year.
