LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former member of a booster club at Southwest High School in Lincoln has been arrested on felony theft charges.

Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood says 47-year-old Amy Luebbe is in custody. Police investigators believe Luebbe took gift cards and cash from the club’s petty cash fund and altered deposits between October 2011 and October 2013.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1fCE3zq ) an audit revealed that more than $14,000 was stolen.

Gift cards were sold by the booster club as a fundraiser and the club got to keep a percentage of the profit.

An electronic message sent to parents Tuesday says the club reported a theft to the police and is cooperating.

The case is not yet in online court records and it’s unclear whether Luebbe has an attorney.
