COVINGTON, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says it has arrested the administrator of a nonprofit organization in Tipton County on theft charges.
The TBI says 57-year-old Allen Parnelle Brown was arrested Wednesday on charges of theft over $1,000 and theft over $10,000. Brown is the administrator of the Tipton Cares nonprofit organization.
The TBI alleges that Brown opened a credit card for the nonprofit in his name and also received a donation of a truck for Tipton Cares and gave it to a relative without board approval. The TBI says Brown also transferred a certificate of deposit from Tipton Cares to an account held by him.
Brown is being held on $15,000 bond. A General Sessions court clerk says she could not provide lawyer information for jail inmates over the phone.
