Our accountant has been terminated. We discovered that for the 2 months prior to termination she put her personal PO Box on invoices and is now holding company checks hostage (in return for personal/expense reimbursements which have yet to be substantiated with receipts). What recourse do we have?

Call the cops! This is embezzlement. You also might want to call the local postal inspector, since this is mail fraud, too. Good luck.
