MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The former house director for a University of Wisconsin sorority is accused of embezzling more than $225,000 from the group over a period of six years.

The State Journal reports that Madison police have issued an arrest warrant for 61-year-old Pamela Dorton. She’s facing charges of theft and fraudulent writings.

Authorities say Dorton was fired from her job at Delta Delta Delta sorority in early 2016 for violating terms of her contract. The complaint says student leaders at the house later came to suspect she had been making unauthorized purchases on a sorority credit card.

Dorton had been house director at the sorority since 2008, taking care of such things as ordering food, planning meals and overseeing property management and maintenance.

A telephone listing for Dorton could not be found.
