A west suburban woman has pleaded guilty to stealing $19,000 from a Bloomingdale elementary school’s Parent-Teacher Organization.

Tiffany Moorman, 41, pleaded guilty to one felony count of theft over $10,000, according to a statement from the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office. 

Moorman served as the Winnebago Elementary School PTO treasurer and had access to the organization’s bank account, according to prosecutors. In December 2015, PTO officials discovered the total funds in their bank account was significantly lower than what it should be.

After an internal audit, officials discovered numerous unauthorized withdrawals, including ATM withdrawals, between December 2014 and November 2015, prosecutors said.

Moorman stole about $19,000 from the PTO account, and spent the money on personal bills, including rent, prosecutors said.

A $100,000 arrest warrant was issued on Feb. 9, according to the statement. Moorman turned herself in to authorities the following day, and was released after posting ten percent of her bond. 

Moormann, formerly of Bloomingdale, is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 10 before Judge George Bakalis.
