Former Cancer Society worker pleads to embezzling

Posted: Updated:

A former American Cancer Society worker will spend the holidays in jail after pleading guilty in Pender County to embezzling nearly $70,000 from the society.

Wendy Anderson Perdue of Hampstead was arrested in October and entered the plea to three counts Wednesday.

A prosecutor said Perdue opened a checking account last year under the name of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. The prosecutor said she withdrew money for such things as trips, getting her hair done and getting plastic surgery. Perdue has since repaid the money, using money from relatives.

A judge sentenced her Wednesday to 25 days in jail followed by three years of probation. In return for the plea, authorities dropped seven other embezzlement counts.
