School employee charged in Tacoma with theft

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- A man who worked as an assistant coordinator for the Community Activity Program in the White River School District is accused of taking more than $20,000.

The Pierce County prosecutor's office says 44-year-old Victor Robbins pocketed the cash that parents paid for after-school programs and failed to pay fees for his own children.

Robbins was charged last month with theft and pleaded not guilty Tuesday at his arraignment in Tacoma.
