Former Maryland Principal Stole From School Account While at Casino, Prosecutors Say

The former Baltimore high school principal made 49 ATM withdraws at Maryland Live Casino totaling over $13,000, prosecutors say

Prosecutors say a former high school principal made dozens of ATM withdrawals from a school account at a Maryland casino.

Leslie Lewis has been indicted in schemes to steal from her school, Baltimore Community High School, the state prosecutor's office announced Monday. A grand jury returned indictments charging Lewis with theft, misappropriation by a fiduciary and conspiracy.

A former teacher at the school, Albert Fluker, is also charged with theft and conspiracy.

Prosecutors say Lewis stole more than $13,000 from an account she set up for the school, making 49 ATM withdrawals at the Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover, Maryland. Lewis also used deceptive purchase orders to steal more than $40,000 in technology, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors allege that Lewis and Fluker worked together to steal four televisions from the school.
