SKIATOOK, Oklahoma -- A Skiatook woman is in the Tulsa County jail charged with one count of embezzlement.

A warrant was issued for 35-year-old Kara McBride on Thursday, the same day she was arrested and booked into jail.

According to court records, McBride embezzled $6,677.43 from the Marrs Elementary School's Parent Teacher Organization between May 1, 2009 to January 6, 2011.

Skiatook Police Detective Jerry Bullard says an investigation determined numerous charges on the PTO's account for gasoline and with the Indian Electric Cooperative. 

That investigation was prompted by a call from the Skiatook School official.
