The treasurer of the Vineville Academy Parent Teacher Organization is charged with Fiduciary Theft after Bibb County Deputies said she diverted more than $34,000 dollars from the PTO to her own business.
Deputies arrested 47-year-old Eloise Maxine Reid after the PTO's bank account bounced a check for $18,000 dollars.
Bank workers told Vineville's Principal there was only a thousand dollars in the account when the balance should have been $35,000 dollars.
An examination of bank records found 17 checks for more than $34,000 dollars written by Reid to Divine Business Solutions, a company Reid owns in Warner Robins.
Reid was treasurer of the organization since last year. A judge set her bond at $35,000 dollars.
