The Former caretaker of a Slate Belt shooting club in Eastern Pennsylvanias is accused of stealing more than $400,000 from the organization in order to help fuel her gambling addiction.

Lisa A. Shafer is facing 26 theft-related charges and planned to plead guilty.

“I’m not denying any charges,” Shafer told District Judge Alicia Zito inside the courtroom. “I’m not running away from any charges.”

She added: “I hate money and I hate gambling.”

The affidavit in the matter suggests otherwise.

“She admitted she was a thief and would do anything it took to get money,” it read.

Shafer also admitted defrauding her victims by filing fraudulent insurance claims.

Police said the thefts spanned from 2012 to 2016 and centered around the Pocono Slate Belt Shooting Association in Upper Mount Bethel Township, a clay trap club on Lake Minsi Drive.
