A Wisconsin woman was arrested Thursday on two counts of theft and three counts of money laundering, Fox Lake police said.

These charges stem from an investigation that started on Oct. 28, 2019, by the Fox Lake Police Department.

Michele L. Kirk, a.k.a. Michele L. Fitte, a 50, of Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, allegedly exerted unauthorized control over and money laundered funds/property of more than $1 million while employed as a property manager of Vacation Village Home Owner's Association in Fox Lake.

An arrest warrant was issued on June 25 and Kirk was taken into custody a short time later, police said. Her bond amount was at $250,000.

She was transported to the Lake County Jail to await a bond hearing. During the eight-month investigation, the Fox Lake Police Department was assisted by the Lake County State’s Attorney, Illinois Department of Revenue and Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
