CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - Police say a Cranston woman forged and cashed checks from a bank account meant to help a Providence food pantry.

WPRI-TV reported (http://bit.ly/2li2xUZ ) on Monday that 44-year-old Tomma DiSano was arrested last week on several counts of forgery and passing counterfeit notes.

Police say the amounts written on the checks totaled nearly $64,000. They say nearly $15,000 of that money was withdrawn from a bank foundation’s account that contained money meant for the Assumption Parish Food Ministry.

DiSano worked for the foundation.

The scheme was discovered in December when someone noticed the signatures on a $19,000 check weren’t authentic.

DiSano hasn’t responded to requests for comment. She doesn’t yet have a court date.
