Police: Cynthia Tanner may be behind theft from Darien VFW

Darien police say the woman accused of stealing more than $800,000 from a veterans charity may have embezzled money from a second group.



Police say a recent audit discovered money missing from the Darien Veterans of Foreign Wars post.



Investigators say Cynthia Tanner, 52, volunteered as a bookkeeper there for several years.



Officers arrested her earlier this week and charged her with stealing from the National Veterans Services Fund.
