ASHLAND, COLUMBIA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A former township supervisor in Columbia County faces more than a half-dozen theft-related charges.
57-year-old Linda Tarlecki of Ashland is accused of stealing nearly $181,000 in Conyngham Township funds. Investigators say Tarlecki forged hundreds of checks dating back to 2013. She was fired last year when newly-elected township supervisors uncovered missing financial records and unpaid bills.
Tarlecki faces a hearing August 6.
