A former Guilford County PTA officer has been charged with embezzling nearly $10,000 from the group's treasury.

Lynn Corn Boone, 32, faces one charge of embezzlement after members of the Allen Jay Elementary School PTA said $9,900 was taken from their account between September 1989 and April of this year while Boone was treasurer.PTA officials noticed that money was missing during a recent audit, Sgt. Billy Shiplett of the High Point Police Department said Wednesday.

High Point police are handling the case because the school is in the city limits.

Boone left the PTA post in August. She was released on $2,000 bond Tuesday. Efforts to reach her Wednesday were unsuccessful.
