A parent allegedly stole more than $100 in cash and charged over $1,000 after stealing from teachers and staff at her child’s school.

According to the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, Tabitha Cribbs, 25, of Guyton took her two children to Sand Hill Elementary on the last day of school where everyone participated in Fun Day. However, ECSO Capt. Mike Bohannon said that while everyone was outside enjoying themselves, Cribbs was inside the building stealing credit cards and cash.

Investigators pinpointed Cribbs as the culprit from video surveillance showing her using the credit cards in Chatham and Effingham counties.

Cribbs has been charged with 11 counts of financial transaction card theft, 11 counts of financial identity fraud, two counts of forgery in the second degree, two counts of possession of a controlled substance (felony) and three counts of theft by taking.

She remains at the Effingham County Jail until her Superior Court date.
