Woman charged with embezzlement
A Caroline County woman is charged with two counts of felony embezzlement after more than $7,000 was found missing from a school booster-club bank account.
Michelle S. Sullivan of Healy Street in Milford was arrested at her home late Friday night.
Sullivan had been the treasurer of the Caroline High School athletic and band booster clubs.
Caroline Sheriff Tony Lippa said an investigation started last week when a new treasurer took over the position and discovered there was only $14 in the bank.
“Approximately $7,000 is missing,” Lippa said, “maybe more.”
Lippa said the case is still under investigation.
Investigators Dean Cable and Scott Gershowitz worked with the commonwealth’s attorney to get a search warrant and to make the arrest.
Sullivan was transported to Pamunkey Regional Jail and was released on bond, which was posted by her husband, Lippa said.
She is scheduled to appear in Caroline General District Court on Aug. 30 for an arraignment.
