The longtime treasurer of the Wellborn Community Center and Cemetery has been arrested on a theft charge

64-year-old Mary Beth Hammock is charged with stealing nearly $95-thousand dollars from the non-profit.

Hammock was charged Thursday for misapplication of fiduciary property, as investigators claim she had been taking money from the non-profit and manipulating monthly financial reports since 2012.

Hammock resigned from the volunteer position this past spring, after board members found a $500 payment on an account the organization had not opened.

Records show 310 unauthorized transactions paid Hammock's credit card bills using money from cemetery plot sales and community center event rentals.

Board members and residents said they're shocked.
