The Centre Daily Times reports ( http://bit.ly/1aa3vrV) Bellefonte resident Doris Conner used the card for things including airline tickets for family members, paying veterinary bills and attending events. Police say she faces charges including theft by deception, receiving stolen property and other counts for purchases between May 2002 and June 2012.
She was arraigned Monday and released on $20,000 bail. A message left for her attorney was not immediately returned.
Tammy Gentzel, the United Way chapter's executive director, says it has received partial restitution from Conner and its insurance company and that it's confident it will recoup all the missing funds.
