— A Raleigh man was arrested Thursday on a charge that he stole more than $44,000 from a Cary school that helps children with developmental disorders.

Charles Scott Hall, 31, of 1251 Goode St., faces a felony charge of embezzlement for allegedly stealing the money from the nonprofit Mariposa School for Children with Autism between May 1 and Jan. 15.

The school declined to comment on the arrest and would not say in what capacity Hall was employed.

According to court records, Hall was arrested in both November and December on charges of forgery.

He was listed as being in the Wake County Detention Center Friday afternoon under a $30,000 secured bond.

    This is appalling. Obviously he has zero conscience.

    That was poor judgment. To steal from a school for special needs kids? Awful.

    He needs restitution and hours of community service. I do not want to pay for his room, board and medical care while in Prison.
