Stokes Co. PTA President Charged With Embezzlement

A P.T.A. President from Stokes County is accused of stealing money from Sandy Ridge Elementary School.

The Stokes County Sheriff's Office charged Amanda Tucker with felony embezzlement.

Tucker is accused of stealing $2,700 from the Sandy Ridge Elementary P.T.A. account over the last 5 months.

Stokes County Sheriff Mike Marshall issued a statement on his Facebook page on Thursday afternoon.

"It's sad that an organization that benefits our children such as the P.T.A. falls prey to this illegal activity," said Marshall. "I sincerely hope the monies can be repaid to the P.T.A. and that the P.T.A. can continue to operate as it has in the past until full restitution is paid."

Investigators say Tucker was the president and acting treasurer of the PTA -- but has been let go from both positions.
