We are learning more about two women accused of embezzling money from the non-profit rescue organization they both were director of at one time.

Both Sue Ann Farmer and Patsy Ransom were dispatchers at the Greene County Sheriff's Office until last week. Both were part-time employees, according to county officials.

Ransom worked for Greene County off and on starting in June 2004, according to county officials. She began as an EMT. A year before she started working for the county, Ransom began her time as director of Snow Hill EMS the year before. Between June 2003 and the time she left that position in June 2011, police say Ransom embezzled $132,000.

An ECU spokeswoman says Ransom also worked for the university police department. Ransom's employment as a dispatcher lasted from September 2013 to March 14, which was five days before she was arrested.

County officials say Farmer worked for the sheriff's office off and on since 1998. While she was most recently a dispatcher, Farmer also worked under Greene County Emergency Management as an EMT at one time during her employment with the county. While Farmer worked for the sheriff's office, she became director of Snow Hill EMS in June 2011. She held that position until October 2013. During that time, she's accused of embezzling $16,000.

Following their arrests, Farmer had a $5,000 secured bond and Ransom a $40,000 secured bond. Both have bonded out of jail.

Court records online show Farmer is due in court Friday while Ransom's court date is scheduled for April 25th.
