WAGONER COUNTY, Okla. - A woman accused of stealing more than $140,000 from Wagoner Public Schools has turned herself in, 2News has learned.
Susan Spaulding, wanted on one count of felony embezzlement, arrived at the Wagoner County Courthouse just before 3 p.m. Friday with her attorney.
According to Spaulding's warrant, the 37-year-old former Wagoner employee had given a number of invoices to the school clerk for reimbursement, arousing administration suspicion.
An audit of her classroom raised further questions as numerous claimed items were unaccounted for and invoices were found on Spaulding's computer on which they appeared to be created.
The warrant states documents obtained by the Wagoner school system show Spaulding claimed $142,983.60 in classroom purchases over the course of the year, prompting her suspension.
Spaulding resigned and, through an attorney, later offered to pay back the money, which the school says it declined.
Investigators tell 2News Spaulding is currently listed as a business education and computers teacher with Chelsea High School.
