The former PTO treasurer of the Alcott School in Wolcott is accused of stealing over $88,000 for personal use.

Wolcott police said 54-year-old Jane Gargano turned herself in Monday after learning of a warrant for her arrest.

According to police, the investigation began on May 10, 2017. Investigators traced back to 2012, when Gargano first became treasurer. According to police, over the years Gargano stole over $88,000 from three different Alcott School PTO bank accounts, through PTO checks, ATM transactions, and by stealing funds from fundraisers and charity events.

Gargano was charged with first-degree larceny and six counts of second-degree forgery. She was released on a $20,000 bond and is due in court on Sept. 26.
