After thousands of dollars reportedly went missing from the accounts of more than one Girl Scout troop and the Beverly Hills Cancer Center, the person they suspect is responsible for the illegal misappropriation of the funds is now facing criminal charges for the allegations.

Around 15 months ago, a new employee working in accounting for the Girl Scouts found that some of the financial records appeared suspicious. The claim was reported to the authorities and an investigation was opened inspecting the activity of the woman who served as treasurer for several Girl Scout troops over the span of two decades.

During the investigation, it was allegedly discovered that the suspect, 52-year-old Patricia Cascione, had reportedly stolen over $58,000 from the Girl Scouts accounts within the last five years.
