Lunch lady sisters allegedly stole nearly $500,000 from middle and high school in Connecticut
Joanne Pascarelli, 61, and Marie Wilson, 67, both worked at cafeterias at Saxe Middle School and New Canaan High School in Connecticut.
The investigation took place when the neighboring schools noticed financial inconsistencies with the handling of cash at the two cafeterias.
the New Canaan Board of Education filed a complaint with the New Canaan Police Investigative Section.
The investigation, which took months, included interviews with multiple cafeteria workers, examining financial records and monitoring both cafeteria operations.
In a statement to the community, Superintendent, Bryan D. Luizzi said:“We are deeply upset by this alleged violation of our trust and the trust of the entire community, and are committed to continuing our full cooperation with the NCPD regarding these allegations.”
The sisters have been charged with larceny and defrauding a public community for allegedly stealing $478,588 from Saxe Middle School and New Canaan High School from 2012 through 2017.
They were released on $50,000 bond and are due to appear in court later this month.
