High School Secretary In Connecticut Busted For $100K Embezzlement
Susan Catin, 57, of Thomaston, Connecticut, was arrested Friday on charges she embezzled some $100,000 from Amity High School in Woodbridge, where she worked as a secretary. Police say Catin took cash and altered checks from athletic and drama events so she could deposit them into her own accounts. She has been charged with first degree larceny and 37 counts of third degree forgery. The thefts allegedly occurred over a 2 year period. The thefts were uncovered after a year book vendor notified the school administration that one of its checks had been altered.
