CRESSON, Pa. (AP) - Police say a woman entrusted with the money from a central Pennsylvania church bingo that benefits the school her four children attend instead stole nearly $14,000 of it.

WJAC-TV (https://bit.ly/1NZSlgP ) report 40-year-old Lori Chislow, of Gallitzin, was charged months after she told a priest what she stole. Police say that prompted St. Francis Xavier Church in Cresson to perform an audit which uncovered even more missing money than Chislow acknowledged, or about $13,600.

Adding insult to injury, the bingo benefits All Saints Catholic School, where Chislow got discounted tuition for her kids for working the bingo.

Chislow faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 19 on charges of theft and receiving stolen property.

Court records don’t list an attorney for her. She didn’t return messages left on her home phone and Facebook page.
