Granite City woman accused of stealing from kids fund


A Granite City woman has been charged with stealing from a fund created to benefit elementary school children.

Candi Eyer of Granite City is accused of taking about $1,400 from the bank account of the Hartford Elementary School Parents Club. The organization raises money to help pay for events to benefit children at the school.

According to police reports, Eyer was president of the club and was the only person who had access to the account. She has since been replaced.

The account was found to be short after proceeds from a recent pizza fundraiser went missing.
