Sheriff’s Secretary Charged With $6,000 Theft

HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) – The secretary for a county sheriff in central Pennsylvania has been charged with stealing more than $6,000 in gun permit fees she collected in the office.

State police say 51-year-old Diane Wilt, of Roaring Spring, skimmed money from daily bank deposits she made between April and September 2008 for the Blair County sheriff’s office. Police say Wilt had sole control of fees collected for gun permits issued by the office.

Wilt faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 16 on theft and receiving stolen property charges.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Wilt and her home telephone number is unlisted.
