Former Arlington Middle School Dance Team Booster Indicted in $11k Theft From Dance Team Treasury

June 2, 2017 – The former treasurer for the Arlington Middle School Dance Team Booster Club has been indicted on felony theft charges for allegedly using thousands of booster club dollars for her personal use, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said Friday.
A Shelby County Grand Jury indicted Charlene Wheeler, 44, on charges of theft of property over $10,000 following an investigation by the State of Tennessee Comptroller’s Office.
According to the Comptroller’s audit, between April and December of 2015 Wheeler misappropriated just over $11,000 in booster club funds by writing unauthorized checks to herself, making personal purchases with the club debit card and making ATM withdrawals from the booster club account for personal use.
