HARRISBURG -- Former HACC president Nancy Rockey has been charged with wire fraud.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Rockey was employed by Harrisburg Area Community College from 1980 until her resignation in February 2012. At the time of her resignation, Rockey was vice president of the Harrisburg campus and vice president of College and Community Development.

In connection with her position, HACC provided Rockey with a HACC credit card to be used to purchase work-related items such as text books, training materials, and other educational items.

Rockey is charged with using the HACC credit card to make online purchases of Target gift cards which she then used to purchase non-work-related items for herself, her family and her friends. It is alleged that Rockey created bogus invoices, later submitted to the HACC finance office, to conceal the unauthorized purchases.

Rockey is charged with purchasing $228,000 worth of gift cards with her HACC credit card.

The investigation was conducted by the FBI and the Dauphin County Criminal Investigations Division.Former HACC VP charged with wire fraud
