Former Southington PTO Treasurer Accused of Embezzlement

The former treasurer of the parent-teacher organization for Hatton Elementary School in Southington has been arrested, accused of embezzling around $6,000 from the school organization.

Christine Honohan, 37, of Southington, turned herself in to Southington Police headquarters at 2:20 p.m. on Friday after learning there was a warrant for her arrest, according to a news release from police.

She is accused of making several cash withdrawals, writing herself a personal check and buying personal items with the PTO debit card without authorization between August 2014 and October 2014.

Police started investigating after the PTO reported their former treasurer allegedly embezzled thousands of dollars.

Honohan has been charged with third-degree larceny and was released on a court-set promise to appear bond. She is due in Bristol Superior Court on May 4.
