Alleged Embezzlement in Burlingame, California school district

A secretary at a Burlingame School is under investigation for allegedly embezzling $9,000, police said yesterday. The secretary oversaw the SamTrans bus pass fund at Burlingame Intermediate School, but left her job last month, Capt. Mike Matteucci said yesterday.

School officals contacted police on Monday, reporting that $9,000 was unaccounted for, Matteucci said. Police have yet to question the woman and wouldn't release her name. "We want to talk to this lady because she's in charge of the fund, " said Matteucci. Like many schools in San Mateo County, Burlingame Intermediate offers students monthly bus passes through SamTrans for $29, said Christine Dunn, spokeswoman for SamTrans. In Burlingame Intermediate's case, the passes are for sale in the office before school, during recess, lunch and after school.
