BATON ROUGE- City leaders approved changes to how community centers operate after a worker was accused of theft.

Cash will no longer be accepted.

Police accuse Matthew Patterson of taking more than $3600 from the Leo Butler Community Center in Old South Baton Rouge. Investigators said he collected money on behalf of the facility but never turned it in.

"Payments in money orders or cash are just a recipe for this to happen again," Councilman Chandler Loupe said.

Auditors will monitor the books to watch for other irregularities.
