McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. — A Fort Loudon, Pa., woman employed by the McConnellsburg Chamber of Commerce was arrested Tuesday on charges of stealing $13,432 from the organization, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Kathy Leigh Carbaugh, whose age was unavailable, was arrested at her home and later released on a $25,000 unsecured bail, state police said in a news release.

Carbaugh has been charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition, theft by failure to make required disposition of funds received, theft by deception, unlawful use of a computer and other computer crimes and two counts of forgery, the release said.

As an employee of the chamber of commerce, Carbaugh was entrusted to pay bills and make deposits of money generated by numerous fundraising activities, the release said.

On July 11, 2008, members of the McConnellsburg chamber conducted an audit of financial records and discrepancies were discovered, the release said.

An off-site audit later discovered that about $13,432 was stolen from the chamber, the release said.
