The former Hamilton-Myers VFW Post 6070 Home Association canteen manager has been charged with theft of funds in the amount of $258,158.14, along with the theft of a $4,499 mower that belonged to the post.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Magisterial District Judge Vivian Cohick’s office, Karen L. Lentz, 56, was arrested in the fall after an investigation was conducted by Pennsylvania State Police and the Pennsylvania VFW Headquarters. She was accused of misappropriating the funds during the 2016 fiscal year, and stealing the zero-turn mower that was registered under the VFW post.
