REIDSVILLE, Ga. (WSAV) – The former Deputy Clerk of the Tattnall County Tax Commissioners office has been arrested and charged with stealing official Governmental funds.

Amy Smith Meeks, 46, of Reidsville, turned herself into the Tattnall County Sheriff Department Tuesday afternoon.

The Sheriff’s Department requested in April 2017 that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation conduct an investigation in reference to funds missing from the Tattnall County Tax Commissioners Office.

The Tattnall County Tax Commissioner, Dale Dutton, had previously notified the Sheriff’s Department of the missing funds and requested a criminal investigation.

The investigation revealed that between October 1, 2014, and April 28, 2017, Meeks took $103,442.46.

She was released today on a $10,000 bond.
