A payroll coordinator wanted on charges of embezzling $20,000 from a former employer in Rockland County was arrested on her 39th birthday by Bergen County Sheriff’s officers when she showed up in Hackensack on a similar charge.

Elizabeth Wescott Slee, who most recently worked at Hackensack University Medical Center, was promptly taken into custody on a fugitive warrant after reporting to the county probation office on Monday, Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino confirmed this morning.

Slee, of Bloomingdale, was there in connection with charges filed against her earlier this year of taking $10,000 from Barr Laboratories on Chestnut Ridge Road in Woodcliff Lake, where she was a payroll coordinator for 7½ years before leaving in March 2010.
