Public school treasuries seem to get raided about as frequently as public school officials plead for more taxpayer funding. “A Harrisburg School District employee is facing multiple charges after allegedly stealing almost $180,000 from the district by creating fraudulent invoices and creating fraudulent overcharges from the transportation company the district used,” Fox 43 reports from Pennsylvania’s capital. “Dana L. Andrews, 38, of Steelton, is facing one count of theft by deception, 44 counts of forgery, 67 counts of unlawful use of a computer and six counts of access device fraud in relation to the thefts, which occurred over a one-year period from May of 2016 to November of 2017, according to Harrisburg police.”

“Andrews was the school district’s Supervisor of Transportation during the alleged thefts, police say. She worked for the district from January 2014 until her resignation on Nov. 8, 2017, when the theft allegations came to light to Harrisburg School District management, according to police.”
