PITTSBURGH (AP) - A former worker at a school cafeteria in the Pittsburgh suburbs has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $90,000 from student meal accounts.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1z9L9Tv ) reports 56-year-old Kathleen Smith, of Carnegie, told investigators that she took the money from Keystone Oaks School District students to pay her bills.

Allegheny County prosecutors say Smith used computer software to manipulate the meal accounts, stealing $92,619 during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years.

The district attorney’s office began investigating after other school food service workers said they thought someone was stealing in May 2013. The DA’s office charged Smith with theft in March.

Smith must return for sentencing March 12.
