A parent-teacher organization treasurer is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the club’s account.
Ellen Lorraine Tubbs, 37, is facing 10 counts of felony theft and seven counts of misdemeanor theft charges.
Tubbs was the treasurer for the PTO at Tenth Street Elementary School in Jasper, but was not a school corporation employee.
Jasper Police say an investigation began in November when money was unaccounted for. She’s accused of stealing $17,217.57 over a two-year period.
Police say Tubbs took money from other parents and wrote checks to herself, then deposited them into her account between August 2016 and October 2018.
Tubbs has pleaded not guilty, but she is scheduled to be in court again on January 10, 2019.
