New London school employee arrested

A New London School District employee is free on a signature bond, following her arrest Thursday in a case of missing funds from Bulldog athletic events.

Wendy Swinton was booked into the Waupaca County jail Thursday on theft charges. New London Police Chief Jeff Schlueter says their investigation indicates the theft of thousands of dollars, occurring over several years.

Swinton is listed as a payroll and accounting specialist at the New London district.

No criminal complaint has been filed yet by the district attorney’s office, but Swinton did appear before a judge Friday morning for a magistrate’s hearing. She was released on a $10,000 signature bond.
