    A former accountant with a Florida camper sales company is facing a grand theft charge after authorities say she stole nearly $170,000 and spent some of the money on new furniture and breast implants.

    Steffani Lariscy, 37, was arrested on Thursday in Iredell County, N.C. after a warrant was issued for her arrest out of Volusia County, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said.

    She was being held on $100,000 bond and it was unknown whether she has an attorney.

    Authorities say Lariscy stole the money over a three-year period while she was an accountant for Robbins Camper Sales in Ormond Beach. It was spotted by the company's owner in March 2012, when he noticed a $1,000 discrepancy in financial records related to the sale of a camper.

    Plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Craft of the Miami Institute for Age Management and Intervention says he is seeing an increase "in women removing their implants for cosmetic reasons. Most of our patients are in their 30s and 40s and now, as they have matured, prefer a slim silhouette."

    When the owner confronted Lariscy about the missing money, Lariscy at first said she didn't know anything about it but would look into the matter, authorities said.

    The owner confronted Lariscy a second time and admitted to taking the money, saying she needed it to help with her divorce and that she was planning to pay it back, authorities said.

    When the owner told her he was reporting the incident to law enforcement, Lariscy took off, the sheriff's department said.

    Investigators spent a year combing through the company's paperwork and Lariscy's bank records, which showed a complex network of accounts at about a dozen banks, authorities said.

    An audit team found Lariscy had taken $169,822.63, the sheriff's office said. An anonymous tipster told investigators that Lariscy had a lot of unexplained cash at her house and had been bragging about it, and said Lariscy had spent $7,000 on breast implants, authorities said.
