Groesbeck Police officers made an arrest on Friday, Sept. 9, in connection to the theft of $8,000 or more from the Groesbeck ISD Band Booster Club.
According to Groesbeck Police Chief Chris Henson, former GISD Band Booster Club treasurer, Jamie Gladden, was the suspect arrested and charged with theft over $1,500, but less than $20,000, along with debit/credit card abuse.
Henson believes the amount of money taken could exceed $30,000 during a time period between January 2014 through August of this year. Further charges could be filed on Gladden – who served as the club’s treasurer since 2012 – after authorities complete their ongoing investigation.
