CAMP VERDE -- A bookkeeper for Mt. Hope Foods has reached a plea agreement.

Linda Carol Summers, 60, is charged with fraud and felony theft from the Cottonwood store. Losses to the theft have been estimated at upwards to $50,000. According to Cottonwood Police, Summers had used her position in the company to write checks reimbursing herself. She had been employed as a bookkeeper by the natural food store for 12 years.

Summers was originally charged with 25 felony counts including forgery, fraud, theft and computer fraud.

Summers has pleaded guilty to five counts: four counts of forgery, all Class 4 felonies and one count of theft of $25,000 to $50,000, a Class 2 felony.

Summers faces sentencing March 4 in Judge Cele Hancock's Division-5 courtroom in Prescott.
