BEAUFORT, N.C. -

A 42-year-old Newport woman is arrested and indicted for stealing more than $5 million between 2007 and 2012.

Susan Garcia was an accounts payable manager for Big Rock Sports.

Investigators say she used company credit cards to make personal purchases and lied on accounting records to cover up the purchases.

With the company credit cards Garcia bought subscriptions to online gambling sites, various things on Amazon.com and paid for travel expenses.

Garcia will have her first appearance in Carteret County Superior Court on June 3.

She's being held at the Carteret County Jail under a $5,000,000 secured bond.
