Wise quit her job after she was confronted by Yukon school officials, records show.

“She did tell school officials she wished to make restitution, because she feels responsible as a manager,” the affidavit states, “but denies the thefts.”

In total, the affidavit shows the defendant stole $8,270 during the 2011-2012 school year.

Wise left evidence

Yukon Public Schools Superintendent Bill Denton said the district began to suspect something was amiss at Lakeview after officials noticed “some discrepancies in some of the deposits.”

Denton said the district began to investigate, but didn’t truly figure out the scheme until they found some evidence left by Wise.

“We really didn’t figure out the system she used until we found some handwritten notes that she did so she could keep track of the cash she took,” Denton said. “She would come back weeks later and make the entry into the students’ accounts so that it never showed up that their account wasn’t accounted for when she took the cash.”

Court records show Wise was released Tuesday after posting $9,000 bail.

Messages left at Wise’s home were not returned Tuesday.
