Former official of St. Petersburg's Sanderlin Center accused of embezzling $200,000

ST. PETERSBURG —- Police have arrested the former program manager of the Sanderlin Neighborhood Family Center and accused her of embezzling about $200,000.

Kimberly Sue Ross, 45, was arrested by St. Petersburg Police on Thursday afternoon after a lengthy investigation, spokesman Michael Puetz said.

The arrest affidavit states Ross: "embezzled approximately $200,000 while being in charge of the financial responsibilities of the center," and says the embezzlement took place from 2004 until recently.

"The suspect has been positively identified through banking transactions which were subpoenaed and statements made to the center during her release from employment," according to the affidavit.

The center, at 2335 22nd Ave. S. in St. Petersburg, runs a variety of education, health and job-related programs. Ross had left her job in December.

The Sanderlin center has an independent board and is one of several Neighborhood Family Centers that receive financing from the county's Juvenile Welfare Board.
