Posted January 20, 2015
Stedman, N.C. — A former PTA treasurer suspected of stealing more than $10,000 from the organization surrendered Tuesday afternoon to Cumberland County investigators, authorities said.
Emily Morgan Robinson, 28, of 2630 Wade-Stedman Road in Stedman, is charged with embezzlement. She was released on an unsecured $2,500 bond.
Robinson served as treasurer for Stedman Elementary School's PTA from August through November. An investigation of PTA funds began on Nov. 20, after discrepancies were discovered in a bank account belonging to school PTA, authorities said.
Detectives searched records involving monies collected through various fundraisers and found that $10,034.96 was unaccounted for. Authorities said Robinson wrote several checks for her personal use from the account and failed to post and deposit cash received from fundraisers.
