Authorities in Lumberton say a former president of a local elementary school PTA is facing and embezzlement charge.
The Fayetteville Observer reports that Lumberton Police Department Capt. Terry Parker said Angela Bono-Severy is charged with 39 counts each of forgery and embezzlement.
Parker said bail was set at $40,000. It is not known whether Bobn-Severy has an attorney.
The current PTA president contacted Lumberton police in September to report that association funds were missing. Police said she reported between $10,000 and $15,000 was missing from the group's coffers.
But Parker said the investigation determined more money was actually missing, although he didn't give an exact amount.
Parker said the money was taken between August 2010 and Sept. 18.
