WORTHINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Officials say more than $17,000 from an Ohio school's vending machine went missing over a six-year period. A state auditor report released this week said the losses at Linworth Alternative School in Worthington occurred from 2013 to 2019. The report says the Worthington City Schools district treasurer's office became aware in May 2019 that money was missing and determined revenues from the soft drink vending machine weren't deposited “in a timely manner.” An administrative secretary responsible for collecting and depositing the money from the machine resigned in July. Her resignation letter cited “personal reasons." Her attorney told the Columbus Dispatch she's cooperating with investigators.
