The Sarpy County "CASA" program director has been arrested.
County leaders say they were alerted to accusations of theft against Paula Creps, and the county Sheriff’s Office began investigating Creps’s use of funds donated to the program through a local non-profit organization.
Thursday night, deputies arrested Creps on charges of unauthorized use of a financial transaction device ($1,500-$5,000) and theft by deception.
Creps was placed on leave following her arrest.
"CASA," which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates for children, supports young people in foster care.
In a news release, Sarpy County leaders say "they remain committed to "CASA’s" mission of supporting court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every child who has experienced abuse or neglect can find a safe, permanent home and the opportunity to thrive."
