Police: Nearly $90K missing at Penn State fraternity

STATE COLLEGE — Police say they're investigating nearly $90,000 reported missing from a fraternity at Penn State University.

State College police say someone at the Theta Delta Chi fraternity reported the missing money and court documents, including a search warrant, spell out what police are investigating.

Bank records show about $57,000 in suspicious cash withdrawals from a fraternity bank account between August 2011 and December 2012. Police say in the same search warrant there appear to be about $30,000 worth of unauthorized debit card withdrawals, too.

Nobody has been charged with a crime, and the fraternity has not commented on the investigation.

Court records show police got the search warrant in January and that police finally received the bank records sought last week.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
