A Bend woman is charged with money laundering, theft and other crimes stemming from her employment with a top golf course designer.

Katrina Kennedy Cannon, 39, was arraigned Thursday in Deschutes County Circuit Court on charges stemming from her time working for David McLay Kidd, who designed Tetherow Golf Club in Bend, and Bandon Dunes on the southern Oregon coast.

A representative of Kidd’s firm, DMK Golf Design, said he could not comment because the investigation is ongoing.

Cannon faces six counts of aggravated first-degree theft in connection with the theft of $10,000 or more from DMK Golf; seven counts of aggravated identity theft; one county of fraudulent use of a credit card; one count of computer crime and one count of money laundering stemming from transfers to Green Dot, an online bank, according to information filed by the Deschutes County District Attorney’s office.

The alleged incidents took place between Jan. 1, 2015 and June 2018, according to the district attorney’s office.

In her LinkedIn profile, Cannon lists her position at DMK golf as financial controller and says she started work at the firm in January 2012.
