The former finance manager for the Kroc Center of Augusta was arrested Monday for stealing nearly $3,000 in deposits from the facility, authorities said.
Kimberly Jacquet-Harod, 48, of Appling, was charged with felony theft by taking. She is accused of stealing $2,851 after the the operations director realized she wasn’t turning in her deposits to Bank of America.
Director Richard Moore realized over the summer that a deposit with checks and cash went missing and was never made. The day of the alleged crime is the same day that the finance manager put in a resignation letter “because she was supposed to start working soon for Hope House” in Augusta, a sheriff’s report says.
“Moore stated that the resignation was quick and unexpected,” the report says.
Jacquet-Harod is free on bond.
According to its website, The Salvation Army’s Kroc Corps Community Center contains over 100,000 square feet of programming space including a 77,000 square feet complex located on a 17-acre site in the historic mill community of Harrisburg. Nestled along the Augusta Canal, the center campus is comprised of one main building designed to complement the nearby Sibley Mill and King Mill, and a 10,000 square feet building that houses the First Stop Family Service Center. In addition, there is an expansive parking lot, several historic homes and a historic church renovated for programming on the campus.
