Theft from SCCA...
A Minersville woman has been charged with theft after an investigation found that she had stolen over $97,000 from the Schuylkill County Council for the Arts.
According to Skook News, Pottsville Police Chief Richard Wojciechowsky said police were contacted by representatives of the SCCA, regarding the possible theft or misappropriation of funds.
During the investigation police learned that 54 year old Caroline Coyle, of Minersville, had begun receiving payments through the SCCA checking account. Further investigation revealed that from January 2014 to January 2019 Coyle received 223 payments totaling $97,932.25, while never being hired, employed or contracted by the SCCA.
Coyle turned herself in at Magisterial District Judge Reiley’s office on Thursday. She was arraigned by Judge Reiley who set bail at $100,000 unsecured pending a preliminary hearing.
