RICHMOND, Ky. (LEX 18)– Kentucky State Police arrested a former George Rogers Clark High School secretary on Friday as the result of a theft investigation.

KSP reports that the investigation began on January 28. The investigation alleges that 61-year-old Dixie Rigney, of Winchester, took more than $219,000 from the high school over the course of ten years.

An indictment warrant was served on Rigney Friday afternoon.

She was lodged in the Clark County Detention Center charged with nine counts of Theft by Unlawful Taking over $10,000, Tampering with Physical Evidence, and Forgery 2nd Degree.
