Red Wing Employee Fired for Embezzlement

A Welch woman who was working for the City of Red Wing in the financial department has been fired after it was discovered she was stealing money.

38-year old Kaleen Gustafson is scheduled to appear in Goodhue County District Court next Wednesday.

According to the Post-Bulletin, she has been charged with felony theft by swindle for stealing more than $30,000 from the city.

Prosecutors allege that Gustafson used several ways to embezzle the funds, including forging signatures and checks.

Some of the money was allegedly sent to her own photography business.

Gustafson was hired in March 2022.
