      Embezzlement Investigation of Former School Bookkeeper

      Lynchburg, VA - A former bookkeeper at a Lynchburg preschool is facing criminal charges, accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the school.

      A grand jury indicted Allyson Lowery on Monday for embezzlement.

      Lynchburg police began investigating her in June for allegedly stealing $8,500 from the First Presbyterian Weekday Preschool.

      They say the money went missing over two to three years.

      The chairman of the board of directors says she's no longer employed there.

      He had no comment on the investigation, saying only-- "The week day school is in good shape and looking forward to the new school year."
