Ohio Woman Stole From PTO to Gamble

An Ohio woman has been charged with stealing thousands of dollars from her local Parent Teacher Organization and then using some of those ill-gotten gains to gamble.

The defendant was named as Amanda Conner of Fairfield Township in Warren County, Ohio, and she stands accused of stealing the funds while acting as the PTO's treasurer. Authorities were tipped off by AurGroup Credit Union, who reported that the PTO account only had $30,000 in it when there should have been $100,000.

An investigation into the accounts found that Conner had spent thousands of dollars on unapproved items. A warrant was served on the defendant's house where a wealth of evidence and receipts was uncovered. Among the items discovered were gaming cards.

Those cards led police to head to Miami Valley Gaming, where the casino shared surveillance footage of Conner using the PTO ATM card to withdraw money. Police say that she spent tens of thousands of dollars at the casino over multiple years.

This isn't the first time Conner has been accused of financial malpractice with a children's non-profit. She has also been charged with stealing funds from the Fairfield Township Youth Basketball League, and a plea deal in that case has been offered.
