An Independence woman turned herself into authorities on Friday. Mary Ward, 32, is facing a felony theft/stealing charge. She is accused of taking funds from an account while serving as treasurer for the Blue Hills PTA. After another individual took over the position, a $22,000 discrepancy was discovered. Ward reportedly presented the board with a monthly spreadsheet of account activity, but did not provide actual bank statements for review. Ward’s bond is set at $20,000 and court proceedings have not yet been scheduled.
