Employee of Norwood company accused of stealing $150,000

Michelle Paluga of Colerain Township was in court yesterday, accused of stealing $150,000 from Carew International, a Norwood sales training company that employed her as an accounts payable clerk. “We caught her, but it was after a long period of time,” Carew’s CEO Jeff Seeley said yesterday. “It doesn’t make us look good.” In a second case, she is accused of stealing $28,000 from the Bevis Elementary School PTA. She served as treasurer of the school. In all, she faces a maximum of 11½ years in prison.
