Kendall County Sheriff's police said they're looking for a former Boulder Hill Elementary School Parent Teacher Association member accused of stealing more than $4,000 from the group.

Deputy Bryan Harl said a warrant was issued March 13 for Meredith Henry, a 36-year-old from Plainfield, in connection with the alleged theft. Henry was treasurer for the PTA at the time of the theft, according to police.

Harl said the PTA reported the missing money in September, saying that more than $4,000 went missing from the PTA bank account between July 1 and July 31, 2013.

Following a six-month investigation by sheriff's police, the warrant was issued for Henry's arrest on a charge of theft, a Class 3 felony. Her bond has been set at $7,500, Harl said.

Harl said Henry has yet to turn herself in.

The Kendall County Sheriff's Department is asking anyone who has information on her whereabouts to contact  Crimestoppers at (630) 553-5999. Callers can remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

No Debbie the School District covers those towns, But that school does not cover Plainfield. And someone else posted that she moved from Boulder Hill So I'm not mistaken.

This is not new. This happens more often than most know. Administrations across Illinois give the individual a chace to give the money back and resign. I agree safeguards should be put into place but anyone who handles the money should have accountabiliy for all funds coming in and going out.

With online banking, every non-profit group should have numerous people with access to the online records in order to do a monthly accounting of funds. It won't stop someone from stealing a bunch of money at one time, but many of these financial crimes start out small or with numerous unauthorized transactions.

I am not surprised by any one stealing money from anyone. The current Monetary system is to blame. NO SECURITY. More employee access via online banking, or access to any financial records of any organization, only lessens the security of the financial being. Perhaps a SUPER ENCRYPTED CRYPTOCURRENCY SHOULD BE USED. The NSA Developed BITCOIN, is one example. Quarkcoin is the most secure, it has 9 rounds of encryption with 6 hashing functions, and not controlled by the NSA. The current banking system was developed by old rich men with pencils. If you think email changed the way we communicate, wait for the use of Emoney, it will change the world, by allowing money transfer online, SECURELY, and PRIVATELY and virtually free from fees, without a bank. Im sorry to inform you that Western Union, will go belly up. Nobody will ever know, who u are, because your name is not attached, no address, no social security number, no phone number, no bank teller looking at your account information, no bank, no money transfer fees, easily pass inheritance down to next of kin, without paying a lawyer to draw up a will. Divorce court, she (and the lawyers) took my house, dog, cars, kids, but my stash of Super Secure cryptomoney, is still mine. screw her and the lawyers. Identity theft will Disappear, when the public adopts cryptos. Invest now, while its still cheap to do so, you may secure your lifetimes wealth.
