TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - The executive director of the Tacoma-Pierce County St. Vincent De Paul Society estimates more than $500,000 has been stolen from the charity over the past decade.

Charles Thompson recently told supporters in a letter that authorities are investigating possible embezzlement.

Thompson told The News Tribune (https://bit.ly/1cQPTYf) the losses were discovered last summer before he was hired.

The losses led the charity to lay off 18 workers and close one thrift store.
