Senior Cpl. Theodora Ross leaving courthouse

Dallas, Texas– The Dallas police officer who headed Crime Stoppers for seven years is accused of stealing money from the program.

According to NBC Dallas, Senior Cpl. Theodora Ross was arrested Wednesday afternoon and taken to a Dallas federal court. Investigators say she stole more than $250,000 from the program over a five-year span with the help of a co-conspirator, Melva Delley.

Ross has been under investigation since a bank told a man last year that someone had collected his Crime Stopper funds.

The two women then allegedly would split the cash, according to the indictment.

Ross, a 26-year Dallas police veteran, was subsequently placed on administrative leave. She had been in charge of the Crime Stoppers program since 2003.

“The Dallas Police Department views her suspected activity as a major breach of public trust and fully supports the investigation of the incident and, given the investigation’s finding, follow-up prosecution,” the department said in a written statement Thursday.

Dallas police said Thursday that all personnel associated with the Crime Stoppers program will take random polygraph tests. Term limits would also be imposed for anyone that is associated with the program and more in-depth audits will be conducted.
