MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Hagerstown man is accused of embezzling more than $31,000 from a state-funded agency while acting as a transportation contractor for Berkeley County School students with special needs.
Marc Allen Porreca, 50, of 479 Links View Drive, was arraigned Wednesday by Berkeley County Magistrate Joan V. Bragg on one count of obtaining money by false pretenses, according to court records.
Bragg set a $10,000 bond for Porreca, who police allege obtained the money from Regional Education Service Agency (RESA) VIII between June 2004 and September 2005.
Porreca was under federal indictment for criminal fraud, money laundering "and a host of other charges," according to a complaint filed by West Virginia State Police Sgt. D.E. Boober.
