ATLANTA (AP) — A woman accused of stealing more than $57,000 from an Atlanta elementary school PTA made her first court appearance and will be released on a signature bond.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 48-year-old Maryam Arjomand will be released on a $40,000 signature bond.

Arjomand surrendered to authorities Monday and has been charged with felony theft by taking. Authorities say Arjomand, a member of the E. Rivers Elementary School PTA, would pick up donations from the group in person, then deposit the funds into her personal bank account.

The PTA co-president alerted Atlanta police to the missing money on March 7. Arjomand’s attorney, Steven Weiner, says she has already repaid more than $54,000.

She is set to return to court May 8.
