PARIS, Tenn. (AP) – A former Henry County court clerk has been arrested after $29,000 was found missing from her office.
According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, agents arrested Deanna Treece, of Springville, on Tuesday.
Treece was indicted by a grand jury after an audit by the state comptroller's office found approximately $29,000 had gone missing between 2007 and 2011 from the General Sessions Court where Treece worked.
The investigation revealed that Treece used checks that were sent in to open civil cases to replace money she took from the office. The computer system showed the fees to open the civil cases was still owed.
Treece was booked into the Henry County Jail on $10,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on March 11.
