DENVER, Pa (WHTM) – A former tax collector in Lancaster County is accused of stealing more than $21,000 in tax payments in 2015 and 2016.
Brian L. Weaver, 50, is charged with two felony counts of theft and a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of the administration of government function.
The Lancaster District Attorney’s office said Weaver would deposit the stolen funds in a personal account, instead of properly crediting them to property and business owner’s tax bills.
Weaver, who was elected in 2014, resigned in 2016.
Weaver turned himself in at District Judge Nancy Hamill’s office on Wednesday. He was released on $10,000 unsecured bail.
