CRESCO, Iowa (AP) - A northern Iowa woman is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a hospital auxiliary.
Howard County Court records say 57-year-old Rebecca Creger, of Cresco, is charged with theft and ongoing criminal conduct. The records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for her. A court hearing is scheduled Monday for her.
Authorities say Creger wrote nearly $21,000 in checks to herself last year while she was treasurer of the Regional Health Services of Howard County Hospital Auxiliary. She told an investigator that she needed the money for medical bills and that she wanted to pay it back.
