The Delaware County District Attorney's office has announced that a local government worker has been charged with multiple counts of theft.
Christine M. Trout, of Glenolden, served as the county's chief deputy to the Delaware County Register Of Wills. As a result of a three-month long investigation, it was revealed that Trout allegedly stole more than $160,000 over a five-year period, while serving the public.
The investigation alleges that she stole cash from files at the end of the work day. She also allegedly changed reports and took cash from voided transactions.
Trout admitted to the theft and she surrendered on Friday, January 18.
Thursday weather looks damp and stormy. It will be mild and muggy to start with spotty showers early followed by afternoon and evening storms. Highs in the upper 70s with winds out of the SW 5-10 mph. Some of the storms will produce locally heavy rain and gusty winds.
This system is from the same cold front that caused the midwest tornadoes. It will also usher in cooler air for the holiday weekend.
