TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida Panhandle woman stole more than $100,000 while running the bingo games for a Tallahassee Moose Lodge.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office reported in a news release that 57-year-old Carol L. Davis was arrested Wednesday following a 5-month investigation.

Investigators say Davis skimmed as much as $300 a night from bingo sales during a 4-year period ending this past June.

The Loyal Order of Moose is an international fraternal and service organization. The sheriff’s office report says the Tallahassee bingo games directly benefit 42 local charities.

Davis has been charged with organized scheme to defraud over $50,000 and grand theft over $100,000. She was being held without bond. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
