Auburn, New York Teachers Association embezzlement investigation complete

 Auburn police have finished their investigation into the embezzlement of more than $800,000 from the Auburn Teachers Association.

Police suspect the funds were taken between January 2006 and November 2012 by the union's former president, Sally Jo Widmer, who later died. They say Widmer used the money to pay personal bills and credit cards and also wrote checks to herself. They do not believe anyone else was involved in the theft.

A new union leader was elected in June 2012 and found the discrepancies in the funds.
