Man accused of embezzling thousands from school PTO account

A man has been arrested on suspicion of embezzling more than $10,000 from an elementary school's PTO account.
Terry Lawrence Cranfill, 47, of Lexington, was charged with one count of embezzlement in an incident involving Welcome Elementary School.
Davidson County deputies allege Cranfill embezzled the money during his tenure as PTO treasurer from 2012-2016. A new PTO president, who was installed in August, conducted an audit and found multiple suspicious transactions, deputies said.
Deputies said they received a report of possible embezzlement on August 18.
Cranfill was held under a $5,000 secured bond in the Davidson County Jail pending a Jan. 9 court appearance.
