A former Parent Teacher Organisation president for Cumberland Middle School, TN, has been indicted on theft charges of over $17,000.
LaRon Bridgeforth stole at least $17,724.80 over a two year period beginning in October 2014. The investigation began when Metro Nashville Public Schools audit department reported questionable transactions in the PTO bank records. The majority of the cash, over $17,000, was withdrawn from the PTO bank account and kept by Bridgeforth in a private bank account. Bridgeforth reportedly withdrew $1,000 while vacationing with his family in Florida, and used about $700 to purchase two gift cards for his personal benefit. Bridgeforth was indicted by the Davidson County grand jury on one count of theft over $10,000 in August 2018.
