Woman accused in Black & Veatch embezzlement investigated in $1.2 million theft from Garmin

A Lee’s Summit woman once entrusted with handling payrolls for two of the largest private employers in the Kansas City area is the subject of a $1.2 million embezzlement investigation by the FBI.

Earlier this month, Patricia Webb was charged with embezzling more than $300,000 from Black & Veatch. Webb worked as a global payroll manager at the Overland Park-based engineering firm until March 4, when she was suspended without pay.

Recently filed federal court documents allege that Webb is also being investigated for a $1.2 million embezzlement from Olathe-based Garmin International, where she previously worked as a payroll team manager.

A Garmin spokesman said Monday that the company is cooperating with investigators, but said he could not comment on a pending legal matter.
