Former United Way official faces theft charges
STATE COLLEGE (AP) — Police in central Pennsylvania say the former finance director of the Centre County United Way faces charges for using the nonprofit’s credit card to pay for $17,000 in personal expenses.
The Centre Daily Times reported Bellefonte resident Doris Conner used the card for things including airline tickets for family members, paying veterinary bills and attending events. Police say she faces charges including theft by deception, receiving stolen property and other counts for purchases between May 2002 and June 2012.
She was arraigned Monday and released on $20,000 bail. A message left for her attorney was not immediately returned.
Tammy Gentzel, the United Way chapter’s executive director, says it has received partial restitution from Conner and its insurance company, and that she’s confident it will recoup all the missing funds.
