An East Huntingdon woman is accused by police of taking $13,500 from the YWCA Thrift Shop in Greensburg while she worked there, according to court papers.
Amy S. Yemc-Gera, 53, was in charge of making nightly deposits, police said. She is charged with theft and receiving stolen property.
An accountant for the YWCA told police that 43 cash deposits between May and August were missing after organization officials noticed a missing deposit earlier this month. YWCA officials said on each occasion Yemc-Gera was working and in charge of depositing the cash, according to court papers.
Officials told authorities that after the missing deposit was discovered, they contacted Yemc-Gera about the situation and she claimed to have misplaced the money, but found it and took it to the bank. There was never any record of a deposit, police said.
She worked there for two years. It was unclear if she was still an employee.
