BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck woman is accused of embezzling $12,500 from a high school dance team.

Thirty-four-year-old Melissa Weltz allegedly stole the money from the Bismarck High School Demonettes Booster Club while serving as treasurer.

She faces a felony theft charge that carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. A court hearing was not immediately scheduled.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Weltz, and a telephone listing for her could not be found.
