Copy-Former employee accused of stealing from nonprofit
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A woman has been accused of stealing nearly $65,000 from a nonprofit group she was employed by in Council Bluffs.
Pottawattamie County Court records say 44-year-old Pamela Duffield is charged with theft. Her attorney has declined to comment. Duffield's preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 15.
Authorities say she stole client money that was supposed to pay Children's Square U.S.A. for child care. She'd worked 19 years for the children's aid organization and was fired in January 2017 after being accused of forging an employee's name.
