An investigation is underway into the alleged theft of funds from the Parent Teacher Organization at T.R. Simmons Elementary School in Jasper.

T.R. Simmons principal Suzanne Snow said Thursday she couldn’t comment on the matter, and she referred all calls to attorney Eddie Jackson, who represents Jasper City schools.

Jackson said he couldn’t comment on specifics in the case, but could confirm an investigation is underway.

“I will acknowledge that there is an investigation going on — and we really don’t want rumors to drive the outcome of our investigation — so I really don’t have a comment until we finish our audit to make sure where we are,” Jackson said.

Jackson said he’s hoping the investigation will wrap up in the next few days.

No charges have been filed against anyone in the case.
