Posted April 3, 2009

— Cumberland County authorities on Friday charged a school cafeteria worker with embezzlement.

Shelia Harris, 45, of 6945 Cash Court in Godwin, was arrested Friday and was released on a $2,000 bond.

Harris, who worked as a cashier in Eastover Central Elementary School's cafeteria, was observed in a surveillance video Monday taking money from the cash register and placing it in her pocket, authorities said.

Between Sept. 4 and Feb. 25, more than $1,500 in cash and checks for meals from students and parents, was stolen from the cafeteria, authorities said.

    Handsome don't worry she could always run for office. I mean this would just be counted as job experience, right? I bet Obama has a cabinet position open. All she has to is say I'm sorry and pay back what she got caught cheating on. Then go cash her big pay check.

    A "govment" employee who was caught being dishonest? I've never heard of anything like this before!

    Seriously, $1,500 went missing between Sept and Feb? This isn't like the drawer was coming up under $2.31 one day and over $1.03 the next, this is serious money! Why hasn't someone caught this before now?
