United Way Fires Worker After Embezzlement


United Way of Central West Virginia says it has fired an employee after discovering that up to $16,000 was missing.

United Way of Central West Virginia president John Ballengee tells media outlets that the organization gave the findi

  ngs of an internal investigation to Charleston police and its insurance provider.

Ballengee says the internal investigation began after United Way officials found several unapproved credit card transactions last month.

He didn't identify the employee who was fired, saying the theft is still under investigation.

The organization serves Boone, Clay, Logan, Kanawha and Putnam counties.
