LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41)-- A University of Louisville employee is fired for allegedly "borrowing" money.

Alisha Ward, a senior program coordinator for the Equine Industry Program, was fired after the university found out she allegedly took money from a fund without approval.

A university spokesman would not say how much money or how the university learned of this.

UofL has had past run-ins with former faculty.

The most notable, Robert Felner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his role in a scam to defraud people of money.

"Our policies and procedures are great the problem you have is when you have bad people trying to do bad things. you can have a good of policies and procedures in place and if people don't follow them and supervisors don't oversee them the way they're supposed to, bad things happen," said Mark Hebert, University of Louisville spokesman.

University of Louisville Police are also investigating Ward's case.

A listing for Ward did not include a phone number.
