Female charged in school theft

A female has been charged with theft over $5,000 after funds went missing from Fort Frances High School last week and resulted in the Rainy River District School Board seeking assistance from the OPP to resolve the incident.
The 40-year-old Fort Frances resident is set to make her first court appearance Dec. 17.
Education Director Jack McMaster could not release any details, but stressed the board felt the best way to deal with the situation was to work closely with the OPP.
He added they spent the weekend investigating and will continue to do so.
No further details could be released from the OPP as the incident is still under investigation.
