The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested the administrator of a non-profit organization in Tipton County, Tenn. known as Tipton Cares after he was indicted by the Tipton County grand jury on theft charges.
Allen Parnelle Brown, 57, of Drummonds, Tenn. was indicted on two counts of theft over $1,000 and one count of theft over $10,000.
In August of 2011, the 25th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office requested TBI to investigate allegations of Brown stealing money while working as the administrator of Tipton Cares.
Information and evidence during the investigation developed that indicated Brown opened a credit card for the non-profit in his name and also received a donation of a truck for Tipton Cares which he in turn gave to a family member.
Additionally, there was a CD transferred from Tipton Cares to an account held by Brown.
