York County Assistant Chief Clerk Vickie Gladfelter has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $347,000 in county funds. She was sentenced to one to five years in state prison. Gladfelter confessed to a seven-year scheme involving selling used county cell phones and pocketing postal refunds.
The thefts were uncovered during an internal investigation conducted by the county in 2010. Gladfelter was terminated late last year.
Her attorney claims she took the money to help her family through some hard financial times.
Advice: Tight economic times may tempt some employees to illegally supplement their incomes. Always have at least two people verify any transaction involving company funds or property.
