A Dothan woman faces 11 more theft charges as part of a continuing investigation by the Dothan Police Department.

Ruthie Lynne Davidson, 48, of Dothan, is charged with 10 additional counts of first-degree theft of property charges and one additional charge of second-degree theft of property.

Police say she wrote multiple checks to herself out of her employer’s US Business Products checking account.

Davidson was arrested earlier this week and charged with seven counts of first-degree theft of property and four counts of second-degree theft of property and four counts of third-degree theft of property.

Police previously told the Dothan Eagle that from January 2018 until present, Davidson allegedly stole $175,000 from US Business Products, where she worked.

According to Dothan Police Lt. Lynn Watkins, the new charges go back as far as 2014.

“This case is still ongoing and more charges could be forthcoming,” Watkins said.

Watkins said the total amount of checks written by Davidson now totals $265,000.

“Ms. Davidson’s employer became suspicious of the business bank account’s activity and notified law enforcement,” Watkins said. “During the investigation it was determined Ms. Davidson had written multiple checks out to herself on her employer’s bank account.”

Davidson is currently out of jail on bonds now totaling $600,000.
