Whitney woman charged with forgery of Salvation Army checks

Local

Whitney Police report a woman arrested for theft from the Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance back during the summer is now facing additional charges.

Pamela Alberts was arrested Monday charged with 19 counts of forgery involving Salvation Army checks.

She had been a board member of the Hill County Salvation Army when the checks were written.

Whitney Police Chief Chris Bentley said the alleged activity took place between mid-2017 and March 2018.

He said that at this point a dollar amount has not been assigned to the activity and that additional charges could be forthcoming.

He did  say the investigation into Alberts’ activities is continuing.

She was arrested in July when it was discovered over $110,000 was missing from accounts of the ministerial alliance where Alberts also worked as treasurer.

The alliance used the money in the operation of its food bank.
