The Williamson County Sheriff’s Department arrested a PTO treasurer Friday morning for reportedly stealing thousands of dollars from a school account.
Billie Sue Barker worked as treasurer of Hillsboro Elementary and Middle School from May 2013 until last week when the organization discovered $20,000 missing from its account.
The missing money was discovered after a check for 21 laptop computers bounced.
The 44-year-old woman is charged with theft over $10,000 and is being held on a $50,000 bond.
She is scheduled to appear in court September 11.
The case remains under investigation and additional charges could be filed.
