A state worker has been charged with stealing about $15,000 dollars from the commonwealth.
State Attorney General Kathleen Kane says Department of Conservation and Natural Resources employee Marylinda Freyermuth pocketed more than $12,000 in cash from her job in the Bald Eagle State Forest in Laurelton, Union County.
She was responsible for collecting permit money and turning it over to the state -- something the AG's office says she failed to do.
Prosecutors say Freyermuth also used a state credit card to make more than $2,600 in purchases for herself and her family.
She's facing theft and fraud charges, and has been released on $50,000 bail.
Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for August 27.
