Ex-Hanford West clerk booked on theft

A former student-activities finance clerk at Hanford West High School has been booked in connection with the theft of $200,000 from the school, Hanford police said.

Kathleen Barrie, 47, was arrested Wednesday. Barrie was put on administrative leave in April in connection with the missing funds and later terminated, said Candace McIlroy, communications coordinator for the Hanford Joint Union High School District.
