Woman defrauds PBG daycare

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - A former business director of a private preschool in Palm Beach Gardens is accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars. Virginia Novoa had been working at the Gardens Learning Center since 2007.

Police say while Novoa ran the center there were so-called "ghost students" who were enrolled but not accounted for. Investigators believe the "ghost-students" tuition was being paid in cash directly to Novoa.

She is accused of taking more than $93,000 from the center.
