A local Boy Scout troop's treasurer missed the lesson in “scout's honor.”

54-year-old Katherine Valenti was arrested for allegedly embezzling over eight thousand dollars from Coventry Boy Scout Troop 1.

Police say she wrote checks from the troop to herself for a period of about three month.

She will answer to embezzlement charges in court on June 12.
