More theft charges have been filed against a former employee of the West Delaware School District in Manchester who already faces charges for falsifying students grades. Manchester police today (Wednesday) arrested 51-year-old Luann Carpenter of Manchester on three counts of theft in the second-degree and one count of third-degree theft. Carpenter is accused of misappropriating a total of near five thousand in funds from the Iowa Cheerleaders Association Bank Account, and high school prom ticket money over the past three years. Carpenter was placed in charge of those accounts in May. Carpenter was charged with 55 counts of altering academic grades and three counts of theft for taking football concession money and ordering food and drink products for school functions, but using the merchandise herself. Carpenter had worked for the West Delaware School District for the past 20 years, as a teacher’s aid and a secretary in the high school guidance office. She’s being held in the Delaware County Jail in Manchester on a 37-thousand-500 dollar bond. School officials have been working to correct those student records that were altered.
