Woman charged with stealing $60K from relief group
An Enterprise woman is accused of stealing $61,540 from a storm recovery organization.
Investigators say Elizabeth Sutherland, 38, took money from the Recovery Organization of Coffee County (ROCC) over a four month period.
She is charged with first degree theft by deception.
The group was formed following the March 1 Enterprise tornado that killed nine and destroyed Enterprise High School. Recently, the group helped residents affected by the floods in Elba.
A statement released by ROCC says, “We are evaluating the potential impacts of this theft on our current planned projects and will be contacting individuals involved to review our options and future plans.”
The case remains under investigation.
