Investigation started with report of missing money from Union Nutrition
We know more details on the second charge that former Union County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Stephanie Rhinehart faces. Rhinehart was arrested Tuesday by SLED agents on a charge of breach of trust with fraudulent intent, $2000 or less. She also faces a more serious charge from the Union County Sheriff’s Office, breach of trust with fraudulent intent, $10,000 or more. A press release from the Union County Sheriff’s Office stated that on March 8, Captain Scott Coffer received a call from the victim, stating that money had been taken from her business, Union Nutrition. Coffer obtained all documents and began an investigation. During the investigation, Coffer learned that money was missing from the Chamber of Commerce that could be linked by the same person. Coffer contacted SLED on March 11 regarding the missing money from the Chamber of Commerce, and the sheriff’s office and SLED worked both cases jointly. After reviewing all evidence and interviewing witnesses, as well as Rhinehart, she was arrested Tuesday. A $2500 personal recognizance bond was put in place on each charge. Rhinehart was released on bond later Tuesday.
