A Jackson County woman linked to about $3,200 in missing funds from a nonprofit youth organization in Madison was arrested Monday.

Amanda Warner, 34, of Seymour faces a theft charge in connection with an investigation that began in November of 2015 when officials with Madison Gymnastics and Cheer Corp. reported unauthorized transactions and missing money from corporation accounts.

That investigation was conducted by Tim Denby, a detective with the Indiana State Police.

Denby reported the investigation showed Warner allegedly transferred $2,200 from the corporation’s accounts into her possession without authorization. She was treasurer at the time the transactions occurred.

Police also believe Warner allegedly spent nearly an additional $1,000 of the corporation’s money to enter her children in gymnastic competitions, according to a news release from Sgt. Stephen Wheeles who is public information officer for the Versailles Post.

A Jefferson County Circuit Court warrant for one Level 6 count of theft was later issued against Warner. Trooper Nate Adams arrested Warner this morning when she voluntarily turned herself in at the Jefferson County Jail in Madison.

Warner was arrested at about at 9 a.m. and later posted a $500 bond and was released.
