KIRKLAND – A New Hartford woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly stole money from the Kirkland Arts Center while she worked there, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Jennifer Walker, 47, is charged with felony fourth-degree grand larceny.

Deputies say on Oct. 12, they received a larceny complaint from the Kirkland Arts Center in the town of Kirkland. Deputies say a lengthy investigation found that while Walker was an employee of the arts center, she created a PayPal account for the nonprofit agency.

The PayPal account was used to take in funds for programming at the Kirkland Arts Center, but Walker also used it over the course of several years to make numerous personal transactions that added up to thousands of dollars, according to deputies.

Walker was arrested by deputies and then released on an appearance ticket. She’s scheduled to appear in the Town of Kirkland Court on Oct. 30.
