BROOKSVILLE — A Bracken County woman charged with allegedly taking money from the Germantown Volunteer Fire Department entered a not guilty plea in circuit court on Thursday.
Andrea Davis, 36, is charged with two counts of theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 but less than $1,000,000.
Count 1 is alleged to have taken place between Sept. 30, 2016 and March 2, 2018. According to the charge, Davis allegedly removed $10,226.27 from the Citizen’s Deposit Bank savings account for the Germantown VFD, while she was acting as treasurer for the organization.
Count 2 is alleged to have taken place between May 2, 2016 and April 23, 2018. According to that charge, Davis allegedly removed $14,304.41 from a Citizen’s Deposit Bank checking account for the Germantown VFD.
Kentucky State Police spokesperson Trooper Charles Loudermilk said the case was turned over to KSP after an audit was conducted of the fire department’s accounts.
“It’s an on going investigation,” he said. “(Davis) has not been arrested.”
At the time of the indictment, Germantown VFD Chief Mark Mains said the department had not suspected anything until he received a phone call from the Kentucky Fire Commission.
“They called and said a complaint had been lodged about our treasurer,” Mains said. “They came in and conducted an audit. Once it was complete, they turned it over to the KSP.”
Mains said he could not comment further on the investigation, but did say Davis had worked as treasurer for the VFD for several years.
The case remains under investigation by KSP.
Her next court date has been set for Sept. 20.
