CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — A High Point woman who operated Chapel Hill’s license plate office has been charged with embezzlement of state funds.
State officials have closed the office until they find a new operator for the office.
Caprina Kirkpatrick is accused of taking nearly $4,300 in state funds.
License plate offices in North Carolina are operated as private businesses under contract with the Division of Motor Vehicles.
DMV spokeswoman Marge Howell says the agency will probably start the process next week to open a new location in Orange County. The nearest offices open now are in Durham, Burlington or Siler City.
It was not clear whether Kirkpatrick has a lawyer.
