This story out of Chattanooga is remarkable for the small amount of money involved and the alleged culprit’s unwillingness/inability to pay back the missing funds–although in one news account, she said that “Everything has been fixed.”
Maybe not so much.
Red Bank Elementary School PTA President Doris Mizzell–nicknamed DeeJay—has been arrested and charged with stealing $900 through fraudulent use of a PTA debit card. She’s also accused of stealing $189 from the petty cash fund.
According to The Chattanoogan,
Police said she told Haley Brown, the school principal, that use of the PTA money was “an accident.”
She was given two weeks to repay the money and did not, it was stated.
