Authorities say 57-year-old Shelley Allegrino was arrested on Thursday.

According to the Broome County District Attorney's Office, Allegrino was charged with third-degree grand larceny, a felony.

Investigators say Allegrino is suspected of stealing more than $10,000 while she was employed at Lourdes Hospital.

The money was said to have been taken while Allegrino was acting as secretary of the Lourdes Employee Charitable Contribution Organization.

According to Lourdes, the organization is a self-governing independent group of employees who choose to participate in a charity giving program.

The group provides money to Lourdes employees who experience unexpected financial hardship.

Allegrino's arrest is the latest in a series of cases in Broome County in recent months in which people have been accused of stealing substantial amounts from non-profit organizations.
