Dover food-service director indicted on theft charges
DOVER – The school district’s former food-service director was indicted Thursday for allegedly taking more than $3,000 in funds from students buying lunch or drinks at school.
Mark D. Covell, 57, whose last known address was 15 Dames Brook Drive in Milton, was charged with two counts of theft by unauthorized taking for allegedly stealing cash from vending machines at Dover High School and from school lunch proceeds across the district.
Police began investigating the matter after the Dover School Department notified them in February that “accounting irregularities in Covell’s office had come to light.” The cash was allegedly taken in small amounts since the start of the 2011-12 school year, according to police.
Covell is no longer employed by the Dover School District.
A Strafford County grand jury handed up the indictment Thursday. Theft by unauthorized taking is a Class A felony, and each charge could yield a maximum sentence of 7½ to 15 years in prison if convicted.
Covell is scheduled to appear for an arraignment in Strafford County Superior Court March 29 at 9 a.m.
