Cops: Ex-business manager stole $73K from shelter

WHITE OAK, Pa. (AP) — The former business manager and vice president of a western Pennsylvania animal shelter has been jailed on charges he stole more than $73,000 from the non-profit.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 32-year-old Franklin Sabolcik (sah-BOHL’-chik), of McKeesport, who faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 19.

WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/14bXgy3 ) reports Sabolcik allegedly made hundreds of unauthorized purchases or withdrawals from the agency’s bank account, spending the money on everything from a country club to season tickets for the Pittsburgh Power indoor football team.

Allegheny County police say Sabolcik made the purchases look legitimate by doctoring the books at the White Oak Animal Safe Haven, where he volunteered for 18 months before his arrest Thursday.
