CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The Tennessee Bureau of investigation today arrested a former employee of the Bradley County Finance Department on charges related to stealing from her employer after she was indicted by the Bradley County grand jury earlier this week.
Renee Lee Munn, 45, of Cleveland, Tenn. was indicted on one count of theft and one count of official misconduct. In May of 2013 while employed as an accounts payable clerk, Munn changed the Bradley County Finance Department’s Quill office supply account to ship all items to her home address without knowledge or approval from her supervisors. Munn ordered items, billed them to Bradley County and received no shipping charges or taxes on any order. The items she ordered were for personal use and totaled approximately $3,200 in charges to the county. She continued to charge the Bradley County Finance Department for items until July 2013 when confronted with the scheme. Munn has since been terminated from her position. The 10th Judicial District Attorney General’s office requested TBI investigate in July of 2013 after receiving allegations from the Bradley County mayor’s office.
She was booked into the Bradley County Jail on $5,000 bond.
