Former Macon animal shelter worker charged in $88K theft case

A former animal shelter worker in Macon has been charged with allegedly stealing more than $88,000, reportedly using the funds for personal expenses.

The Associated Press reported that Anne Brennaman, 59, has been charged with fiduciary theft, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. A volunteer said Brennaman had taken “a large amount” of money given to the shelter and used it for “overseas trips” and “personal expenses,” the AP reported.

Brennaman told The Telegraph that the accusation was “baseless” and that her lawyer had “documentation” showing how the money had been spent, the AP reported.
