    Woman pleads guilty to embezzling from employer
    A
    Rockford woman pleaded guilty in federal court Friday to charges of
    mail fraud resulting from a scheme to embezzle nearly $860,000 from
    Motorola Inc. in Elgin.

    Bethann
    R. Gilroy, 33, pleaded guilty to embezzling $859,369.17 between
    December 2003 and December 2006.According to the plea agreement, Gilroy
    admitted that while employed by Motorola from Dec. 1, 2003, to Dec. 1,
    2006, she ordered inkjet cartridges that were not needed by Motorola,
    had them shipped to Motorola and then either took them to her Rockford
    residence or shipped them there.Gilroy admitted she then sold the
    cartridges on eBay, shipped them to individuals throughout the United
    States and pocked the proceeds. As a result, Motorola paid $513,952.19
    for the cartridges, which she sold for her own profit.Gilroy also
    admitted that she obtained more than $333,989.19 in reimbursements from
    Motorola for purchases that never occurred by submitting to her
    supervisors credit card statements and invoices that she created. After
    the reimbursement requests were approved, Gilroy deposited the funds
    into her personal bank account.In addition, Gilroy admitted using
    $6,935.33 in Motorola’s funds to purchase computers and other computer
    accessories for her personal use and admitted taking Bluetooth
    accessories valued at $4,492.46 from Motorola without consent, then
    selling the accessories on eBay.
