YOUNGWOOD (KDKA) — Disney World, Las Vegas, Mexico and Aruba… just some of the places investigators say Patricia L. Keller visited with money she is accused of stealing from a doctor’s office in Westmoreland County.

Keller, 62, is accused of writing herself checks and opening credit cards to steal $217,000 from Tri-County Occupational Medicine in Youngwood where she worked as an office manager.

Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck says Keller was released on her own recognizance and was expected to plead guilty, but she never showed up for a hearing.

Detectives tracked her to British Columbia, then Moscow, and now to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, confirmed Peck.

It’s a country that has no agreement to extradite suspects back to the United States.

If she tries to return to the United States, customs officials have been put on alert.
