Ex-Penn State Employee Arraigned

Talk about getting your hand caught in the cookie jar.

Heather M. Miller, a former administrative assistant in the Office of Student Life at Penn State Altoona, was arraigned Wednesday in Magisterial Court on felony theft charges after reportedly stealing $32,210.63, according to the Altoona Mirror. The thefts occurred from May 2008 to August of this year, when school auditors confronted Miller about inconsistencies in the books.

“Certainly, as soon as we learned of it we took appropriate action,” said Penn State Altoona spokeswoman Shari Routch

Miller, who served as adviser for the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, stands accused of stealing $20,887.50 from the group’s accounts over a two-year period.

Miller also allegedly used a Penn State purchasing card and sorority funds in June to accompany her family to the sorority’s national convention in Orlando, Fl. According to police, she used $1,250 in Disney gift cards that were used to buy four five-day passes to the amusement resort.

Kids, don’t steal money from sororities. It never ends well.
