DULUTH, Ga. -- The vice president of Duluth High School's football booster club has been charged with stealing more than $18,000 from the organization.
Christian Antonette Houston, 56, faces six felony and two misdemeanor counts. Police believe she took $18,700 from the Duluth High School Touchdown Club.
Gwinnett County Schools spokeswoman Sloan Roach said Duluth High's football coach approached school administrators to say he believed some money was missing from the booster club. An investigation revealed the money was spent through forged checks that paid for Houston's personal items.
Roach said Houston took the money between May 1 and Dec. 31 of last year. She was arrested Tuesday and booked in the Gwinnett County Jail.
