BETHANY – Authorities have made an arrest in connection with an ongoing Bethany College embezzlement case.

According to Brooke County prosecutor Joe Barki, Rachelle Weese was arrested Friday as part of the

Federal investigation.

Barki says Weese is alleged to have blackmailed Shelly Lough into stealing more than $500,000 from the college.

Lough worked as the school cashier and was indicted back in November on charges of embezzlement and falsifying accounts.


Lough told investigators from the beginning that others were involved, and blackmailed her into taking the money. The state and federal investigation is ongoing.  Stay with NEWS9 as we work to learn more.
