Phelps Woman Stole More Than $1.3 Million From Friend's Business

A federal case is pending against a Phelps woman who admitted stealing more than $1.3 million while working for a friend's business in Seneca Falls.

Charging documents say Karen Owens confessed in 2017 to stealing the money over several years while working as the Finance Director at Finger Lakes Conveyors.

She was charged with fraud and reportedly began making restitution payments, then stopped.

The Finger Lakes Times reports she still faces trial, though a plea deal is possible.
