— A former officer of the Rockfish Elementary School PTA has been charged with stealing about $5,200 from the organization, authorities said Thursday.

Angela Ellis Taylor, 41, of 5705 Player Circle in Hope Mills, was charged last month with embezzlement. She has been released on bond.

A bank statement indicated the January deposit for the PTA was substantially lower than it should have been, said Debbie Tanna, spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.

The Rockfish Elementary principal notified authorities and the North Carolina PTA of the discrepancy, which led to the felony charge against Taylor.
