The former Executive Director of Lancaster Urology and Blue Ocean Solutions has turned herself in to face charges of taking over $265,000 from the two businesses.

Tina Spellman, formerly from 28 Poplar St. Mt. Joy, now residing in Georgia, was employed by Urological Associates of Lancaster.

Authorities allege Spellman started taking funds beginning in March of 2010 from those businesses until her resignation on December 19. 2012.  

Police say Spellman wrote unauthorized checks to herself from the business accounts, requested reimbursement for non-business related expenses, utilized the Corporate credit card for personal means and paid off personal credit cards for her and her family.  

Following a lengthy investigation Spellman is alleged to have taken over $265,000 between the two businesses.    

Spellman turned herself in to authorities Friday and will face charges of forgery, identity theft and theft by deception.

She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bail.
