A Burlington resident has been arrested for stealing computers and other items from her former employer – a local nonprofit that had obtained the devices on behalf of children and families in need.
Casey Kimrey Hall has been charged with obtaining property by false pretense and larceny by an employee after she allegedly embezzled tablet computers and Internet hotspots from the Alamance Partnership for Children.
According to the office of Alamance County’s sheriff, the partnership originally contacted the authorities on March 19 after it learned that some of the families it serves hadn’t gotten the hotspots and tablets they were due to receive.
An investigation by the sheriff’s office ultimately determined that Hall, a former employee of the partnership, had misappropriated these items. According to the sheriff’s office, the 33-year-old white female, who hails from 1515 South Mebane Street, Apartment 1, in Burlington had, forged the signatures of the intended recipients in order to obtain the tablets and hotspots for herself.
Hall has been placed under a $1,500 bond since her arrest.
