A 30-year-old Ardmore woman is facing charges she embezzled merchandise and cash from her retail store employer.


Haverdy L. Avant was arrested by Ardmore police Tuesday after officers received a report from management at Maurice’s Inc. She was taken into custody without incident and booked into the county jail.


Wednesday, the district attorney’s office filed one felony count of embezzlement against Avant. She made an initial appearance in district court where a $500 bond was set on the charge.


Avant was still jailed Wednesday afternoon pending the posting of bond, according to a spokesperson for the Carter County Detention Center.
