Teachers union treasurer arrested in alleged embezzlement in California

The treasurer of the Redding branch for the California Teachers Association was arrested today on suspicion of embezzlement, authorities said.

Redding police identified the treasurer as Ronda Jean Mackey-Fish, 54, an Anderson resident and teacher at Pacheco School.

Police said they were contacted by the Redding Service Center Council regarding a possible embezzlement. During the investigation over the past year, detectives determined more than $18,000 had been embezzled.

Shasta County Superior Court on Thursday issued a felony arrest warrant for embezzlement for Mackey-Fish, said police, making the arrest the following day at her home.

She was booked at the Shasta County jail and is being held on $25,000 bail.
