MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) — The vice president of the Manitowoc School Board is accused of embezzling more than $133,000 from the store where he used to work.
Forty-nine-year-old Tim P. Newberg is scheduled to make an initial court appearance Monday on a felony theft charge.
Police detective Eric Kowalski said the alleged thefts occurred at the Uni-Mart Convenience Center where Newberg worked from 2007 to last October.
He said a manager noticed that cash receipts didn’t always balance at the end of Newberg’s shifts.
The police report quotes Newberg as saying he took the money because he was having “financial difficulty.”
Manitowoc School Superintendent Mark Swanson told WOMT-AM that Newberg won’t participate in school board activities until the legal situation is resolved. Swanson said the legal outcome will determine Newberg’s future with the board.
