Ex-Comptroller Charged With Embezzling at Least $151K
ALTOONA, PA—Leona Gebhart, the former comptroller for Henderson’s Printing and subsidiaries, was arrested and charged with embezzling at least $151,130 during an 11-year period, the Altoona Mirror reported.
Gebhart was hit with 90 felony counts, including forgery, access device fraud and theft following a two-year investigation by Altoona police into financial discrepancies at Henderson’s. Gebhart is also accused of allowing the company’s federal tax payments to become delinquent. An IRS lien on Henderson’s building and the freezing of the company’s accounts alerted Chairman Thomas Henderson to the crime in April 2011.
