Former Drug Court Probation Officer Arrested
UNION CITY, Tenn. - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a former Union City drug court probation officer today.
Martha Sue Moore was indicted on two counts of theft over $60,000 and one count of money laundering.
In April, the 27th Judicial District Attorney General office requested TBI to investigate discrepancies in the reported amounts of money that Moore had collected from probationers.
During the TBI investigation, the State Comptroller's office conducted an investigative audit which revealed that between 2006 and 2013, Moore stole more than $63,000 from the probationers she was in charge of monitoring.
Westate Corrections Network first discovered a discrepancy in money while preparing for an audit.
Moore was booked into the Obion County Jail on $150,000 bond. Her initial court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
