CANTON — The former director of elections in neighboring Cherokee County has been charged with felony theft after officials say she used a county credit card for personal charges.
According to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, 55-year-old Janet Munda of Cumming was arrested Saturday. She was released that night from the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center after posting a $9,000 bond.
According to Jay Baker, a spokesman for the Cherokee sheriff’s office, Munda reportedly spent more than $700 from 2011-14. Her arrest was the result of a six-month investigation.
Munda was fired from her position as elections director in July, Baker said.
According to a sheriff’s report, Cherokee County Manager Jerry Cooper gave investigators one year’s worth of account statements for the card “in the care and control of” Munda.
