Indiana State Police arrested an Evansville woman for allegedly embezzling over $13,000 from the Mission Nutrition Program in Gibson County.
State police arrested 51-year-old Deborah Wolfe after their investigation, which began in October 2012, determined she allegedly embezzled the money from the Princeton based meal program.
An audit was conducted by the Indiana State Board of Accounts and it was determined that Wolfe had allegedly spent more than $13,000 from the two accounts.
Wolfe was arrested Tuesday afternoon after she turned herself in at the Gibson County Jail. She was later released after posting bond. She's facing a theft charge.
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.
