Missing Money Probe Ongoing at Wake County School
Posted February 16, 2008
Raleigh, N.C. — The Wake County School System is looking into a case of missing money at a middle school.
Principal Patti Hamler confirmed at a parent meeting in December that an investigation was launched into misplaced funds at Leesville Middle School in north Raleigh.
A parent told WRAL that Hamler said uncashed checks had been found in closets, file cabinets and storage tubs.
The school system implemented stricter auditing standards after a fraud ring was uncovered three years ago in the School System Transportation Department.
