Authorities say a former Obion County drug court probation officer has been charged with stealing more than $63,000 from probationers she had been monitoring. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said yesterday 44-year-old Martha Sue Moore has been indicted on two counts of theft over $60,000 and one count of money laundering. Investigators say Moore reported incorrect amounts of money she collected from probationers while working for Westate Corrections Network.

The TBI says Westate discovered a discrepancy in money collected while preparing for an audit. According to the TBI, the state comptroller's office conducted an audit that showed Moore stole more than $63,000 from 2006 until early 2013. Moore was booked into the Obion County Jail on 150 thousand bond. Her initial court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
