SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Prosecutors declined to file charges Friday against a longtime Drew Ford employee arrested on suspicion of stealing more than $100,000 from the East County auto dealership.
Lizeth Guadalupe Ochoa, 35, was arrested Wednesday. She has worked at Drew Ford for 13 years.
The District Attorney's Office would not say why no charges were filed Friday, other than to say the case did not meet the burden of proof.
Ochoa had been under investigation since late November, when her employers reported that large amounts of money had been embezzled from the business in La Mesa, according to police.
La Mesa police Lt. Matt Nicholass said Ochoa was employed in a financial capacity. He declined to specify how the alleged theft occurred, only saying that the investigation showed that "different techniques" were used to take the money from the business.
