The former treasurer of an elementary school PTO is charged with embezzlement.
Lynn Marie Johnson, 37, of 232 Prospectors Way, was charged Thursday with one count of embezzlement.
Johnson was the treasurer of the Davis-Townsend Elementary PTO during the 2015-16 school year, the Davidson County Sheriff's Office said. She is accused of using the PTO debit card to make personal purchases over just more than $1,000.
The sheriff's office began investigating Oct. 5, after the school PTO's newly-elected treasurer discovered several inappropriate charges that occurred the previous school year and reported them, the agency said.
Johnson was charged and released with bail set at $5,000.
