HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – The treasurer of a Hampton school’s PTA is accused of embezzling thousands of dollars over the course of two months last year.

Cpl. Mary Shackelford with the Hampton Police Division said Tammie Brown Boyd, 48, of Hampton was arrested Friday and charged with one count of felony embezzlement.

Boyd was the treasurer of the PTA at Paul Burbank Elementary. Investigators say Boyd embezzled more than $3,000 from the PTA between June 2013 and August 2013.

The investigation began after officers were contacted by the PTA. Vendors contacted the PTA to say their checks were bouncing. Shackelford said bank documents showed 26 unauthorized transactions.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming.
