$100,000 allegedly stolen from Mukilteo firm

EVERETT — An Edmonds man is accused of embezzling about $100,000 from a Mukilteo company.
The thefts happened over six months last year, according to court papers.
Raymond Alindogan, 55, is expected to appear in Snohomish County Superior Court next week to answer to the allegations.
Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Tammy Bayard earlier this month charged Alindogan with first-degree theft, a felony.
The case was investigated by Mukilteo police.
The allegations came to the attention of the aerospace company's owner in July 2013 when his bank called to report that Alindogan had made numerous cash withdrawals from the business account. Alindogan was employed as the company's controller and had permission to withdraw money, according to an affidavit prepared by Mukilteo police detective Lance Smith.
The owner asked the bank to look into how much had been taken out. A bank employee reported that Alindogan had made three to four cash withdrawals a month since February 2013, Smith wrote. The withdrawals totaled just more than $100,000.
The owner told police that he hired an outside attorney to look into the withdrawals. The lawyer reportedly met with Alindogan and his attorney. Alindogan allegedly admitted that he'd taken the money for his own use, Smith reported.
Alindogan repeated that information when interviewed by the detective, court papers said.
It's unclear how long he worked for the company. He has no prior criminal convictions.
