SAN ANTONIO -

A former insurance coordinator at a Castle Hills surgery center is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from her employer.

Marisol Martinez, 44, is accused of pocketing payments from patients at the Surgical Arts Center in the 6500 block of Blanco Road.

The arrest affidavit says she would keep the money and then edit and postdate the receipts.

Investigators say company financial records show Martinez took almost $15,000 from patients over a 15-month period.

Martinez is charged with theft.
