A befuddled group of York County administrators take to the podium back in October shocked and surprised by the actions of one of their own. Twenty-seven year employee Vickie Glatfelter is accused of stealing money from the county.
The District Attorney's office received notice from postal authorities that there was irregularities with regard to postage meter refunds. That's what started this process," said York County Solicitor Mike Flannelly
That process began in September of 2010. Glatfelter, the county assistant chief clerk, is accused of pocketing refund money from overages to postage meter machines. The embezzlement took place for at least a year.
"It is the Commissioners understanding that Ms. Glatfelter is cooperating with authorities and is not denying her wrongdoing," York County Commissioner Steve Chronister said back in October.
Just how much was taken remains the unanswered question. Right after the irregularities were found, Glatfelter was placed on administrative leave. Soon after she was fired. Her friends and colleagues were saddened by the events.
"Just extremely sorry that this is a very tragic thing to have happened to the County of York," Noll said.
Again, the big question left unanswered so far is just how much was taken. That question is expected to be answered later today.
