Sacred Heart Hospital employee charged with stealing thousands of dollars


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A supervisor at a local hospital is charged with stealing thousands of dollars and investigators say the total amount missing may be much higher.

Marcia Arneson was a supervisor of the Center for Healthy Living at Eau Claire's Sacred Heart Hospital. She's charged with stealing more than $6,000 in cash and services. Hospital officials say when she was confronted, Arneson said, "I have a problem. I need help. I can't pay my bills."

Investigators say she repaid the money about a week later, but they now believe the thefts had been going on for several years and the amount of money missing may be several times more than the $6,000 figure.
