    A Rhode Island woman has been charged with stealing nearly $287,000 from her former employer.

    The president of that company filed a complaint in July, which led to an investigation.

    Police say Furtado issued several forged checks to her private trucking company and identified nearly 350 separate, unauthorized checks or withdrawals.
