Dana L. Andrews, 38, of Steelton, is facing a host of charges after she stole funds from the district. Andrews was the school district’s Supervisor of Transportation at Harrisburg School District in Pennsylvania during the alleged thefts.
She was embezzling money by creating fraudulent invoices. Much of this was done electronically through mobile-app deposits, which district officials say may have made it difficult to track. From May 5, 2016 to Nov. 7, 2017, she stole $179,312.12, the charging document say.
She made six ATM deposits and 67 deposits over a cell phone app. She altered 44 checks by adding her name to 17 checks made payable to the district and forging 27 checks using a false signature.
She faces one count of theft by deception, 44 counts of forgery, 67 counts of unlawful use of a computer.
This is not Andrews’ first run-in with the law. Court records show she has four other criminal convictions. After the incident district is developing tighter oversights.
