Woman accused of embezzling from Cancer Society in court
BURGAW, NC (WWAY) — A woman who allegedly embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from the American Cancer Society made her first appearance in front of a judge Tuesday morning.
Last week the Pender County Sheriff’s Office accused Wendy Perdue of stealing $68,000 from the charity after detectives say she opened an unauthorized bank account under the Relay for Life name.
Perdue’s case was continued until November 13.
After her appearance, Perdue refused to comment on the 10 counts of embezzlement the Sheriff’s Office has charged her with.
