WESTPORT — A Bridgeport woman embezzled more than $29,000 from a Westport employer over the span of nine months, police said.

In early October, Westport police received a complaint from a Westport business owner over possible theft.

The employer told police that the business bookkeeper, 33-year-old Kimberly Goodman, of Bridgeport, had made fraudulent transactions in order to credit her personal accounts multiple times a month over a nine-month span, from February to October.

An investigation revealed that Goodman entered fake return transactions at work and transferred more than $29,000 to her own personal credit and debit cards.

Goodman turned herself in to police on Oct. 17 to face a first-degree larceny charge for embezzlement.

She was held on a $10,000 bond, and she is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 26.
