Police arrested Thursday the head of a Queens nonprofit for allegedly stealing hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.

Dr. Dorothy Ogundu is the head of Angeldocs, a charitable health clinic in Jamaica Estates.

The State Attorney General's office accuses Ogundo of stealing funds meant for that charity, about $373,000 worth.

The money came in the form of government grants, but investigators say Ogundu used them to fix up a commercial property she owns, among other personal uses.

She could face 15 years in prison if found guilty.
