Two Fremont women are accused of helping embezzle nearly $2.5 million from Gavilon Grain over several years.  They are the second and third persons to face charges in the scheme.


Fremont Police arrested 66-year-old Dennis Hesman last week. He is charged with falsifying documents at the grain elevator he ran to create fake receipts for grain.


Investigators say Hesman created the false documents for his daughter, 42-year-old Joleen Cameron, or his daughter-in-law, 50-year-old Kathy Springer-Hesman. They were both arrested in the past few days.


Investigators at Gavilon found 307 examples of falsified documents between 2007 and 2013.


Both Cameron and Springer-Hesman posted $3,000 bond on Monday. Dennis Hesman's former employer discovered an embezzlement scheme after he retired from the company. The investigation revealed that Hesman had falsified documents while working for the company between 2007 and 2013.

The FBI was also notified. The agency is investigating possible federal charges.
