LEXINGTON — A Lexington man is accused of embezzling from an elementary school PTO.
Terry Lawrence Cranfill, 47, of 348 Reedy Creek Road, is charged with one count of embezzlement.
He is accused of embezzling from the Welcome Elementary PTO, the Davidson County Sheriff's Office said.
The investigation began on Aug. 18, when the PTO's newly-elected president conducted an audit on the bank account and discovered several suspicious transactions, the sheriff's office said.
