2 Georgia women indicted in $943,000 embezzlement

ATLANTA — Federal prosecutors say two former Cox Communications employees accused of embezzling more than $940,000 from the company have been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Officials said Tuesday that 36-year-old Joysha Flucker and 38-year-old Sakia Allen of Jonesboro had access to the company’s electronic invoicing system that tracked payments to third parties. Prosecutors say Flucker and Allen manipulated the invoicing system so the company would issue duplicate payments to the third parties that were funneled into bank accounts each of them had control over.

Officials say the two stole more than $943,800 from the company.

Prosecutors say Allen has already pleaded guilty to a count of wire fraud, and Flucker was arraigned Tuesday. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
