BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A 46-year-old Bangor woman has been indicted on a theft charge for allegedly stealing tens of thousands of dollars from a Maine nonprofit where she worked.

Laurena Cunningham is charged with theft by unauthorized taking for misusing funds collected by Healthcare Charities, the charitable arm of Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems.

The Bangor Daily News reported that Healthcare Charities determined that more than $56,000 in donated money was diverted between last November and March.

Healthcare Charities raises $10 million to $15 million each year to benefit the health organizations that fall under Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems.
