Pee Dee woman charged with taking $20K from county job

Posted: Updated:

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina woman faces charges of cashing more than $20,000 worth of checks issued to a Darlington County economic development group.

The State Law Enforcement Division said Friday it arrested 26-year-old Dana Howell and charged her with breach of trust with fraudulent intent. Investigators say she cashed more than $20,000 worth of checks issued to Darlington County Progress Inc. for her personal use.

SLED said the money was taken over almost two years and as late as last month.

Darlington County Progress Inc. is the private-sector arm of the local economic development partnership that pulls together companies, municipalities and non-profit organizations.
