Ex-Weyerhaeuser Manager Sentenced To Almost 5 Years In Prison

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – An ex-finance manager from Weyerhaeuser who stole over $4.5 million from the timber business has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison.

Acting U.S. Attorney Scott Erik Asphaug said Susan Tranberg of Eugene also was sentenced Wednesday to three years of supervised release.

Court documents say starting as early as June 2004 and until 2019, Tranberg defrauded Weyerhaeuser out of more than $4.5 million by submitting fraudulent invoices for payment to a fake vendor she created.

Tranberg had worked for Weyerhaeuser in Springfield for more than 40 years.

A financial analysis determined most of the money was used to fund a lavish lifestyle of expensive dinners, vacations, wedding expenses, and shopping sprees.
