Sebastopol Woman Arrested For Embezzling Thousands From Nonprofit


A 45-year-old Sebastopol woman has been arrested for embezzling thousands of dollars from a nonprofit that benefits two schools in the area. Melissa Riley was arrested Wednesday for felony embezzlement and grand theft from the Twin Hills Apple Blossom Educational Foundation. Riley was a volunteer at the foundation until December when it was discovered the funds were missing and authorities were called. The Sheriff’s office is declining to say how much was taken but it’s believed to be more than $40,000. The Nonprofit has since taken measures to prevent further incidents.
