August 10, 2019

STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) — A northwestern Iowa school librarian and art teacher has been accused of stealing more than $2,000 from two school fundraising events.

The Sioux City Journal reports that 50-year-old Susan Slagle-Boyd, of Storm Lake, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of theft. Police say officers were called to St. Mary’s Catholic School on Thursday after school officials discovered money collected from two book fairs missing.

Police say Slagle-Boyd is accused of using $630 from a fall book fair and $1,500 raised from a spring book fair for her personal use. The money was supposed to go to the school system for curriculum supplies.

Slagle-Boyd was booked into the Buena Vista County Jail and her bond set at $5,000.
