CLINTON, Iowa (AP) - A state audit shows more than $38,000 was improperly used from the Clinton High School Band Boosters fund, the result of an investigation that led to the removal of the group’s treasurer last year.

Iowa Auditor Mary Mosiman released Wednesday an audit report ordered after the group’s president learned last May the account was overdrawn.

Auditors found that former treasurer Amanda Johns frequently transferred band money into her bank account.

Johns told auditors she feared high school officials would use the money for other purposes. School officials say there was no such plan.

Auditors say incomplete records make it impossible to determine whether thousands of dollars from band fundraisers was deposited.

Johns was removed in May. No charges have been filed.

A telephone listed in her name rang unanswered.
