    An ex-chief financial officer for a Dallas-area school district has been charged with stealing more than $600,000 from a vault.

    Prosecutors say 61-year-old Carolyn Foster of Lewisville was indicted for federal program theft from the Grand Prairie Independent School District. The time frame was October 2014 to July 2015.

    A Grand Prairie ISD statement Tuesday says two finance workers uncovered the alleged theft the day after Foster left the district, which has since changed the way it handles cash.

    Foster was arrested Monday as a contract worker for International Leadership of Texas in Richardson.

    A statement Tuesday from International Leadership says Foster was fired following her arrest.

    No attorney could immediately be located to speak for Foster, who's free on bond. She faces a maximum 10-year prison term if convicted.
