A Leet Township woman waived to court charges that she took more than $6,000 while serving as treasurer of a Sewickley non-profit organization.

A Leet Township woman waived to court charges that she took more than $6,000 while serving as treasurer of a Sewickley non-profit organization.

Tracey Gist, 45, of Pilgrim Drive, appeared in Leetsdale District Court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing on charges of forgery, theft and access device fraud.

According to a criminal complaint filed by Sewickley police, Gist forged seven checks belonging to Union Aid Society to pay personal bills between the start of her term as treasurer on June 1, 2010 through May 2012.

Union Aid officials noticed discrepancies while reviewing financial records, police said.

Gist, who has since resigned, is making restitution to the Union Aid, which works to provide emergency financial assistance and other programs to qualifying residents of the Quaker Valley School District.  

A formal arraignment is scheduled for March 25.
