Cape Cod woman accused of stealing from charity
BARNSTABLE, Mass.—A Cape Cod woman sued in October for allegedly stealing from a Harwich-based charity she worked for is now facing criminal charges.
Cynthia Small was indicted Tuesday by a Barnstable grand jury on three counts of larceny of property valued at more than $250.
Authorities allege the 48-year-old Small embezzled about $65,000 from the Harwich Ecumenical Council for the Homeless Inc. The nonprofit provides low-cost housing and child care and manages about 60 rentals in Harwich, Dennis and Yarmouth.
The Cape Cod Times (http://bit.ly/z1PSIt) reports that the organization sued Small last year, claiming she used the money she embezzled to pay the rents of her two adult children.
