Charges: Employee stole over $100,000 from Ramsey, Minn. charter school

An employee at a charter school in Ramsey, Minnesota, is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the school over the course of almost a year. 

A financial audit of PACT Charter School revealed public funds intended to pay for a building lease had been diverted into the bank account of Bernard Fox, the school’s human resource and finance manager.

Between Nov. 2015 and Oct. 2016, the 44-year-old transferred a total of $112,500 from the school’s account into his own bank account. 

Fox is being charged with theft by swindle.
