Main Line Bookkeeper Stole $400k For Lavish Lifestyle; UPenn Donates $100M To Schools; Museums Close

The bookkeeper of a Main Line roofing company is accused of stealing close to $400,000 from the business and spending it on luxury items and a lavish lifestyle. 29-year-old Tiarah Brokenborough is charged with multiple felony counts including dealing in proceeds of illegal activity, theft by unlawful taking, theft by deception, receiving stolen property, forgery and other related offenses. Authorities say that she took $394,000 from her employer, Hynes Roofing and Siding, between October 2018 and March 2020 when the theft was discovered. She used the money to pay for vacations, rent, entertainment, and even cosmetic surgery. She spent $28,000 on StubHub buying tickets to see the Flyers, Sixers, and Cowboys as well as a Drake concert. She spent $5,800 for liposuction and buttocks augmentation. Montgomery County District Attorney Steele said, "This is a reminder that every business and non-profit organization needs to have checks on a bookkeeper or treasurer so more than one person has control and oversight of the monetary activity. It's the only way to be assured the business' or organization's money is safe." Her preliminary hearing is December 15.

The University of Pennsylvania announced that it will be donating $100 million to the School District of Philadelphia over the next 10 years to help deal with environmental hazards like asbestos and lead in school buildings. The $10 million each year for the next decade is the largest private contribution in the district's history. UPenn President Amy Gutmann said officials were proud to partner with the city and school district "to significantly improve the learning environment for Philadelphia's schoolchildren in a way that will have a long-lasting impact on the health, safety, and wellbeing of our entire city." Since 2018, the school district has fully stabilized lead paint in 54 elementary schools, completed work to certify an additional 25 schools as lead-safe and invested more than $23 million to complete asbestos-related projects.

Philadelphia's major museums announced they are closing their doors to comply with the city's new coronavirus COVID-19 restrictions. Museums, along with other businesses like gyms, theaters, movies, performance spaces, bowling alleys, arcades, libraries, and casinos, are not allowed to operate effective Friday, November 20 through the end of the year. The 5 Parkway museums (Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, the Barnes Foundation, Eastern State Penitentiary, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art) issued a joint statement. The Mutter Museum, Penn Museum, Independence Seaport Museum, Museum of the American Revolution, The Fabric Workshop and Museum, National Constitution Centers, Mummers' Museum, and Franklin Institute all have stated they will be closed. Certainly others will be doing the same.
