LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

A former PTA president was arrested last week, accused of stealing almost $17,000 from the organization.

Lisa Shirah, 34, faces a variety of charges after she allegedly took money that was intended for the Springhead Elementary Parent-Teacher Association.  Detectives say Shirah deposited three PTA checks onto her personal account and cashed six others for a total of $16,678.48.

Shirah was the president of the Springhead Elementary PTA from October 2011 until January 2012, according to investigators.  She then served as the treasurer for the PTA until July 26.

Shirah was released on bond Friday, according to her arrest report.
