SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- A Missouri woman was sentenced to more than two years in federal prison for stealing more than $380,000 from her employer through a mail fraud scheme.

Forty-seven-year-old Regina Allison, of El Dorado Springs, was sentenced Wednesday to 2 1/2 years in prison and ordered to pay $460,404 in restitution.

Prosecutors say she stole more than $380,000 from Allison Tire Company and Allison Oil and Supply, which is owned in part by her ex-husband. She was fired in November 2015 when supervisors discovered she had forged checks from the company's accounts to pay fictitious businesses she created for her personal benefit.

She also admitted she didn't report the embezzled income on her federal income tax returns, causing a loss of about $58,000 to the U.S. and $16,000 to Missouri.
