Former school secretary charged with embezzling $10k from uniforms, fundraisers

From Oklahoma’s News 4, “A former secretary at a charter school is facing criminal charges, accused of pocketing nearly $10,000 instead of depositing it.

Viridiana Meza, 29, is charged with two counts of embezzlement and one count of falsifying corporate documents. She worked as an elementary school secretary in the Santa Fe South Schools Inc. charter district, according to an affidavit.

Meza, court documents show, began working at The Hills Elementary School in July 2016. The following month, according to an affidavit, she began making out deposit slips without depositing the money.

“She was entrusted to go to the bank and deposit some money the elementary school had,” said Oklahoma City Police Officer Megan Morgan. “I don’t know exactly where the money was going but it clearly was not going into the bank account that belonged to the school.””
