Formal Embezzlement Charges Filed


Formal embezzlement charges have been filed against Crystal Bickford of Ponca City.

The former treasurer of the Charity Angels AMBUCS will have her initial court appearance October 7th.

She was arrested on a probable cause warrant earlier this week after AMBUCS officials contacted police. Bickford faces 69 counts of embezzlement. Among the discrepancies were unauthorized ATM charges, fuel payments and money transfers.

She was released earlier on a $25,000 bond.

Reports indicate she was making arrangements to pay the organization back, and had made a $1,500 payment to the organization earlier.
