Woman Arrested for Stealing Money from Mission Nutrition Meal Program
Indiana State Police arrested an Evansville woman Tuesday afternoon for allegedly embezzling over 13-thousand dollars from the Mission Nutrition Program, based out of Princeton.
51-year-old Deborah Wolfe is charged with Felony Theft.
She turned herself in at the Gibson County Jail and was released on bond.
The Indiana Department of Education supported the program through its Summer Food Service Program which was created to serve nutritious meals to eligible children during summer and school vacation periods.
Wolfe has been the director of the program since its inception in 2010.
Investigators say Wolfe allegedly used money from the program's two accounts to make numerous unauthorized purchases for her personal use during 2011 and 2012
