BANKS, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Police in Washington County arrested a high school volunteer on Thursday for theft of school funds that were meant to support school programs.
According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the Banks High School administration caked them in January to report a possible theft after seeing what appeared to be 53-year-old Cindy Schorn from Banks stealing money.
School district officials said Schorn had been a volunteer for the district for eight years. One of her responsibilities was to collect money for entry for basketball games.
On separate three occasions, police said surveillance footage shows her taking money out of the cash box and then placing in into her pocket.
Police issued Schorn a criminal citation of arrest for three counts of third degree theft.
She is scheduled to appear in court on June 12.
