Spring Lake, N.C. — Cumberland County authorities said Tuesday that they have charged a former Parent Teacher Organization president with stealing from the group.
Amber Nicole Tripp, of 1609 Crescent Drive in Spring Lake, was arrested Friday on an embezzlement charge and was released on a $3,000 unsecured bond.
Investigators said Tripp embezzled $2,695 from the Manchester Elementary School PTO in March by taking cash from the Scholastics book fair and not depositing the cash into the PTO bank account.
