A Carteret County EMT-firefighter is facing charges.

Detectives arrested 41-year-old Angela Morado of Cape Carteret and charged her with three felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.

Morado is accused of obtaining more than $18,000 in money and goods from the Wildwood Fire and Rescue squad. Officials say she was employed in the department as the administrative supervisor and an EMT-Firefighter and has been terminated.

Officials say the incidents happened from October 2006 through December 2008. Morado's bond was set at $1,000.

    What was she thinking? Why would anybody want to do such a thing that risk jeopradizing their reputation and creating embarrasment? That is a shame.

    this makes all firefighters/EMTs look bad because of her she was supposed to be helping the community not hurting it. don't judge other firefighters/EMTs just beacuse of her making a really bad decision.

    Not surprised these type of people are usually fat and untrustworthy.

    I hope this opened eyes in the Wildwood Fire & Rescue district. Innocent people were hurt by the lies that she has told and things she has done. May God bless the decision makers that the right decision is made. I hope her family can get through this because take it from me they are the ones who hurt the most. For the other comments it has nothing to do with the profession or being a hero. It has to do with the person who is doing the crime and their past present and future actions. I hope people see that when fingers were pointed in the past that she also had a large hand in what went on. The people that got blamed for things that either started the department or had been there for a long time that truly loved the department and still care about what happens to the district. People should really pray about what they have done and who they have hurt. They have been forgiven hope they can forgive themselves.

    You've got to love it when someone makes an assinine comment under anonymous. Golly, you are really brave and maybe you are the true hero. A keyboard gives everyone courage, even anonymous timid mice.Don't slam people who are doing what you don't have the courage to do yourself.But again I say, your courage is behind a keyboard.

    Absolutely has nothing to do with her profession! She got caught doing a bad deed, she could have worked at wal-mart and done the same thing! I agree that none of us Police/Fire/ Military consider ourselves "Heroes" except the "wanna-be's" that get into the job usually for just a short time, once they figure out we actually have to work!

    This person is charged, her job just happens to be of a respected profession. This has nothing to do with the profession but the person who is accused of the crime.
