Valley Cottage, New York teacher's aide charged with embezzlement

An elementary school teacher's assistant has been arrested on an embezzlement charge involving the theft of more than $13,000 from her union, authorities said Tuesday.

Christine Carolus, 50, of Valley Cottage served as treasurer of the teacher's aide labor group — School Related Professionals Chapter — when the thefts took place, authorities said.
Carolus, who worked at Liberty Elementary School, is accused of writing checks to herself for $12,850 and also withdrew another $800 for reimbursements, the Rockland District Attorney's Office said.
The thefts took place between June 2007 and May 2009, and were discovered after a new treasurer won election and reviewed the labor union's books, the office said.
