A Lewisburg woman has been arrested in Colorado on a charge of theft, according to a release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, aided by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, arrested Aleea Danielle Nash on Monday evening on a warrant from Marshall County for theft over $250,000.

Seventeenth Judicial District Attorney General Rob Carter requested that TBI agents assist the Lewisburg Police Department with an investigation of Nash on January 12.

The investigation determined that Nash, who worked for a Lewisburg dental practice as a receptionist and bookkeeper, stole in excess of $250,000 from her employer between February, 2014 and January, 2017,

The Marshall County Grand Jury indicted Nash on the charge on July 26, and a warrant was issued.

Nash is being held in Colorado without bond while facing a fugitive from justice charge. She had a hearing scheduled on Wednesday.

Court officials in Marshall County told the Tribune that the indictment remained sealed here, until Nash is extradited from Colorado and arraigned before the court in Lewisburg.
