Former Chamber Director Faces Embezzlement Charges

The former director of a local chamber of commerce is accused of embezzling thousands of dollars.

Jennifer Barr of Cooper St. in Winterville is charged with embezzlement during her time as executive director of the Ayden Chamber of Commerce, according to the Daily Reflector. The paper says Barr's accused of taking about $10,000 between May and December of 2008.

Barr was charged but not jailed Monday. The Ayden Chamber has a new chief now, who says questions about the chamber's money came up during the transition of leadership, according to the Daily Reflector.

    This lady just recently changed jobs not to long ago, I rather not where she works. All I know is it's a lot of snakes in the grass in come places. I wonder if that's why the ulities are so high, cause they are trying to help replace the money.

    If the cubicle cuties are wearing nice clothes and leaving a vapor trail of perfume, sure trust them. Everyone knows they would never steal anything, it's the poorly dressed blue-collar crowd that steals right? WRONG!!!!!!!! White collar crime happens every minute of every day.
