Nov. 20– The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a former deputy clerk who allegedly stole money from the Hardin County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office while she was employed after she was indicted by the Hardin County grand jury on Monday.
The TBI said today that Savannah resident Amber Renee Terry, 32, was indicted on one count of theft of property over $10,000 and one count of official misconduct.
In April 2013, during a routine county audit by the state comptroller’s office, money was discovered missing from the office of Hardin County Circuit Court Clerk Diane Polk.
The TBI said Terry told auditors she was robbed twice in 2012 while taking deposits to a bank, but never reported the robberies. The 24th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office requested a TBI investigation regarding the missing funds.
