A 55-year-old woman is accused of embezzling about $10,000 from Eastern Michigan University over the summer, police said Monday.

Pamela McMichael, a budget analyst in the university’s Extended Programs and Educational Outreach department, was arraigned Saturday on one count of embezzlement by an agent or trustee of more than $1,000 but less than $20,000, records show.

EMU Police Chief Bob Heighes said McMichael embezzled a little more than $10,000 from the university during the summer months.

“All of the investigation is not complete, we’re not sure exactly how long it’s been taking place,” Heighes said. “The area we looked at most recently was over this past summer.”
