KENTWOOD, Mich. — Kentwood Police say two people have been charged after allegedly embezzling more than $100,000 from AA Transportation, 5740 Division Ave.

Ilderina Sakib Kajtezovic and Sakib Kajtezovic, former employees of the trucking company, are facing charges that include embezzlement over $100,000, conspiracy to commit embezzlement and using a computer to commit a crime.  The duo are father and daughter.

According to a release, the two used company credit cards to obtain fraudulent business loans for their personal use.   The company discovered the embezzlement last year, and police say the two were arrested after a lengthy investigation.

The suspects are scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning for a probable cause hearing.
