An eight-month investigation by the Fox Lake Police Department and other agencies has led to a Wisconsin woman's arrest on two counts of theft and three counts of money laundering of funds in excess of $1 million.
Fifty-year-old Michele L. Kirk, also known as Michele L. Fitte, was arrested Thursday and charged with five felonies related to her time as a property manager at Vacation Village Homeowners Association in Fox Lake, authorities said in a news release.
The Lake County state's attorney, the Illinois Department of Revenue and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue assisted in the investigation that began in late October.
