The former Silsbee library director was arrested this morning by Silsbee police after an investigation into missing funds.
Crystal Mallet Moss, 36, surrendered to police. She is accused of embezzling more than $25,000 over a two year period and redirected the funds for personal use.
Silsbee Police Chief Mark Davis said Moss was charged with theft by a public servant, a third degree felony.
Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Chris Ingram set bond at $25,000.
According to sources, Moss was relieved of her duties as library director in January.
If convicted, Moss faces 2-10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
