Winchester’s Former Finance Director Arrested

News release from TBI:
Chattanooga, Tenn. – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation today arrested the former finance director for the City of Winchester after she was indicted by the Franklin County grand jury yesterday on theft, forgery and misconduct charges.
Mary Faye Morrow, 63, of Huntland, Tenn. was charged with theft over $60,000, two counts of official misconduct, forgery and tampering with government records. Morrow left the finance director position in July of 2010, but remained working in the office until the end of that year. The finance director who replaced Morrow took note of the amount of money coming into the system and the District Attorney General requested TBI open a case on missing funds in July of 2011. The comptroller’s office conducted an audit as part of the investigation.
Morrow was booked into the Franklin County Jail and posted a $10,000 bond
