Curwensville woman faces charges of theft and forgery after stealing from township

CLEARFIELD – Charges of theft and forgery have been filed against a 57-year-old Curwensville woman, and the victim is a township.

State Police say Christine Lewis is accused of stealing more than $3,600 from Greenwood Township by writing checks to herself while she worked there.

Lewis was fired in April when the township auditor discovered that six checks had been processed without the proper signatures.

An investigation into Lewis’s alleged wrongdoing began in early May.

Lewis waived her right to a preliminary hearing this week, and bail was set at $10,000.
