SMYRNA — A Smyrna woman has been charged by Cobb County Police with using a credit card from an area high school’s football booster club to charge more than $6,000 in personal items.

Stephanie Lewis Ford of Harwinor Road was “entrusted as a parent volunteer” and treasurer for the Campbell High School Spartan Football Boosters club, according to the arrest warrant.

The warrant stated that Ford used a credit card given to her to make “purchases for her own personal gain and not for its intended purpose, to support the football booster club,” between July 2012 and November 2012.

The credit card charges included tickets from Delta Air Lines for herself and two children, an Avis rental car, a storage unit fee and fast-food restaurants purchases totaling $6,292.

The warrant also listed a payment to the Boston University Dean of Students.

Ford’s daughter reportedly attends school at Boston University.

Although the warrant has been issued for Ford on a felony theft by taking charge, she had not been booked into the Cobb jail as of Friday afternoon.
