Ex-employee charged with stealing from Md. elementary school

ELKRIDGE — Howard County police have charged a former elementary school employee with stealing nearly $9,000 from the school.

Fifty-year-old Twyla Blackmon-Green of Elkridge was charged Monday in a criminal summons with 16 counts of theft, the department said Tuesday in a news release.

Officers say the Howard County Public School System notified the department about discrepancies in account ledgers. Authorities say Blackmon-Green, an officer worker at Ducketts Lane Elementary School in Elkridge, had access to the school’s accounts and cash.

Investigators say Blackmon-Green stole money that had been collected for field trips, book sales and in fundraisers.
