Two people allegedly embezzle $30,000 from PTA in Middleborough

MIDDLEBOROUGH – Police are preparing embezzlement charges against two people whom they say fleeced an elementary PTA group of $30,000.

Police Chief Bruce D. Gates did not release the names of the suspects, but said it was a long-term scheme perpetuated by two PTA members who are no longer in the group.

On Sunday night the local school department sent out a phone message to parents of elementary-age students notifying them of a 6 p.m. “business meeting” on Monday that did not involve academics or the safety of students and staff.


School Superintendent Roseli S. Weiss confirmed today that she will discuss the embezzlement charges at tonight’s meeting.
