Three women have been charged with third-degree theft and conspiracy to commit theft after plotting to steal more than $70,000 from Morristown, N.J.-based Atlantic Health System, NJ.com reported Jan. 5. 

One of the women, 39-year-old Jessica Addison, was employed by the health system as a supervisor in specimen processing, according to the business database ZoomInfo. She created fake employee profiles for Kaleigh Kalb, 21, and Isabella Valentine, 21, and submitted fake timecards for both. 

The women received $71,157 in payroll distributions, which they split among themselves, according to prosecutors. Their court appearance is pending. 

Ms. Addison is no longer employed by Atlantic Health System. 

Atlantic Health System told Becker's they are unable to comment on pending law enforcement matters.
