A Leland woman is wanted for allegedly embezzling thousands of dollars from a local parent-teacher organization.

Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. April Stanley said sheriff’s detectives are searching for Dana Leigh Brooks, 38, of 3430 Andrew Jackson Highway, Leland.

Brooks is wanted for twelve counts of embezzlement for allegedly embezzling more than $5,000 from the PTO at Lincoln Primary School, Stanley said.

Stanley said the embezzled funds included money from PTO fundraisers and local contributions, which are used to support projects for Lincoln students.

Brooks’ last known address is in Leland, and she is possibly in the Wilmington area.
