Just last week, Northampton County Executive Stoffa told a county committee investigating a theft that people will always find ways to steal. "Sooner or later it's going to happen again because people are smart." Amazingly, by the end of the week, another theft of county money proved Stoffa right.
Update: Both The Express Times and Morning Call have detailed accounts of this theft. The Express Times also has this advice for taxpayers: "Any resident who paid property taxes via check by Feb. 22 but has not received a copy of a cashed check should call the Northampton County revenue department at 610-559-3102 to confirm the bill was paid."
