UPDATE: Fmr. Lower Shore Enterprises COO Indicted

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - After a recent indictment of a former employee, a local nonprofit says it's cooperating with authorities.

Lower Shore Enterprises CEO Luis Luna tells WMDT that Brenda Malone, 43, was the chief operating officer with the nonprofit up until September 2012. Malone is alleged to have stolen tens of thousands of dollars from the organization on several occasions between 2005 to 2012.

Luna wouldn't go into details as to why she left, but did send us the following statement:

"In the standard course of business, Lower Shore Enterprises staff uncovered some financial irregularities and reported them to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office and the Wicomico County State's Attorney.  LSE cooperated fully with the authorities in the subsequent investigation.

"We will be unable to discuss the matter further until the case is resolved."

Luna says that our calls went unanswered on Wednesday as LSE was closed due to the snow storm.

Malone faces three felony charges of theft: two counts of theft of at least $1,000 and one count of theft of at $10,000 but less than $100,000. Her initial court appearance is scheduled for February 21st.
