The Titusville woman who was to face a preliminary hearing next week in the alleged theft of funds from a Titusville Cub Scout pack was charged Wednesday with stealing over $35,000 from the Cherrytree Cemetery Association.

State Police say 34 year-old Stephanie Mullen was jailed in Franklin after her arraignment in Pleasantville on charges of theft by unlawful taking and theft by deception.  Bail was set at $50,000.

Mullen served as cemetery association treasurer from 2006 through 2012.  A State Police investigation shows that, at one time, the group’s checking accounts should have grown to more than $37,000.  By early July of this year, less than $2,000 remained in the accounts.

In June, KQW reported that Mullen had been charged with 18 counts  in the disappearance of more than $2,000 from a Cub Scout pack for which she became secretary in February.  Her preliminary hearing in that case is scheduled for August 7.

In 2002, Mullen faced other theft charges, and served three years of probation following a court-approved plea bargain the following year.
