A Crest Hill woman has been charged in DuPage County with stealing more than $400,000 from a Hinsdale dental office where she worked as a part-time bookkeeper, according to the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Roxana Dusanek, 56, of 1334 Harvest Drive was jailed on a $300,000 bond. She is charged with theft, continuing financial crimes enterprise and forgery.

While working at the dental office, Dusanek created a stamp of her employer’s signature without permission and applied that stamp to hundreds of unauthorized checks that were payable to her and her business, IMC Services Group, the state’s attorney’s office said.

Dusanek also sent unauthorized payments from her employer’s bank account to her business’ bank account, with the thefts allegedly taking place between Feb. 13, 2014, and June 23, 2017, according to the state’s attorney’s office.

“It is alleged that through her actions, Roxana Dusanek caused a great financial hardship to her employer,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin said in a news release.

“I would like to thank the Hinsdale Police Department for their efforts on this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Ken Tatarelis for his work in holding the defendant responsible for her alleged behavior,” Berlin said.

An investigation by the Hinsdale Police Department led to Dusanek, police said.

Dusanek’s next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 19 in front of DuPage County Judge George Bakalis.
