PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Victoria Rozanski, 59, walked into the Federal Courthouse to be arraigned on one count of embezzling more than $100,000 from the credit union she used to manage.

Earlier this month, a grand jury charged Rozanski with taking the money, often cash while she managed the Ellwood City Holy Redeemer Parish Federal Credit Union — a then, small parish-based operation.

The indictment handed down earlier this month alleges that between January 2003 and May of 2009, Rozanski stole the money.

Although the indictment does not go into detail on how she pulled it off, in court Tuesday, prosecutors said there were two bankers’ boxes of evidence for the defense to review in preparing for the case.

The small credit union has since been merged into a larger one. No customers lost money.

Rozanski, a former school teacher and mother of three, pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday.
