Lisa England, 38, of Brick, accused of stealing nearly $70,000 from a Belle Mead nonprofit, was charged on March 15 with theft by deception after turning herself in to Somerset County authorities.

According to police, England, a former bookkeeper and office manager for Artistic Realization Technologies (A.R.T.), which uses technology to enable physically challenged people to express their artistic ideas, had the nonprofit’s blind executive director, Tim Lefens, sign checks that she prepared. Police say the issue was discovered by England’s replacement after the former was fired for unrelated reasons.
