Beaver Dam Woman Accused Of Embezzling From Coyote Gas

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam woman is accused of embezzling money from Coyote Gas and Liquor. Jennifer Singsheim is charged with felony Theft in a Business Setting for allegedly taking $23-thousand from the Beaver Dam gas station. The 44-year-old reportedly told investigators that she developed an addiction to scratch-off lottery tickets after winning $500 several years ago. For the past year, she had been taking the scratch-offs and trying to pay the shortfall with the winnings. Eventually, she resorted to balancing the books with money from her paycheck and then from loans. When those options ran out, Singsheim – who was manager of Coyote – stopped making nightly bank deposits. She admitted her actions to management when it was discovered that she failed to make a weekend deposit and cooperated with the investigation, paying back $5000 before formal charges were filed. If convicted, Singsheim is facing up to ten years in prison. An initial appearance is on the calendar September 23.
