OBION COUNTY, TN (KFVS) -

A former Obion County drug court probation officer has been indicted by a Grand Jury on theft and money laundering charges.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Martha Sue Moore, 44, of Obion County was indicted on two counts of theft over $60,000, and one count of money laundering.

This comes after the 27th Judicial District Attorney General's Office requested an investigation in April concerning inconsistent amounts of money she collected from probationers, according to TBI. Moore was working as a drug court probation officer for Westate Corrections Network.

Investigators say the money discrepancy was discovered while Westate Corrections Network was preparing an audit.

According to TBI, the state comptroller's office then conducted an investigative audit. The audit showed that Moore stole more than $63,000 between 2006 and early 2013, according to TBI.

The money in question was fees from probationers she was in charge of monitoring. According to investigators, the audit showed Moore was giving receipts to probationers for money turned into her, and she then took the money.

Moore was taken to the Obion County Jail on $150,000 bond. She is scheduled to be in court on August 16.
