— Two former employees of the Six Forks Rescue in Raleigh are under investigation for suspected embezzlement, according to search warrants released Thursday. 

Jill M. Cafolla, who was the office manager for three years, is accused of using a rescue debit card to make several purchases not approved by the board, warrants state. Those purchases included three personal cellphones.

Cafolla and former treasurer Edward E. Fuller Sr. are accused of transferring $10,000 to another account, where debit cards were issued without the board's knowledge, according to warrants. Authorities said the 245 debit card transactions from this account were made in North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and California.

Many of the purchases were done by Fuller's son, Edward Fuller Jr., who is not an employee of Six Forks Rescue.

Fuller agreed to repay more than $9,800 in October 2009, but nothing had been paid back as of June, according to warrants.
