TACOMA — A former Tacoma woman has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for embezzling over $500,000 from St. Vincent de Paul Society.

The Justice Department said in a news release that Angela Toney Saucido, 44, was sentenced Monday to 45 months in prison and three years of supervised release for wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Saucido, who moved to Phoenix but continued to work as a bookkeeper for the Catholic charity in Tacoma, was also ordered to pay more than $543,000 in restitution.

U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes said St. Vincent de Paul has had to close some of its thrift stores and lay off much of its workforce.
