Child Care Center Director Charged with Embezzlement

October 22, 2010

A Chesterfield County woman faces charges of embezzling more than $90,000 from a child care center while serving as its director.

An indictment unsealed this week charges 41-year-old Mary Beth Lloyd with taking the money from Grace Covenant Child Development Center in Richmond.

Grand jury special counsel Matthew C. Ackley told the "Richmond Times-Dispatch" that Lloyd was fired sometime after May 1. The money was taken from December 1, 2009, through May 1.

Lloyd's attorney, Craig S. Cooley, told the newspaper that Lloyd turned herself in to Richmond police Tuesday. He declined to comment on the case's specifics.

Lloyd's trial is set for January 25.
