Bainbridge -- A former Decatur County tax assessor is charged with theft.   Judy Armfield, who resigned in June, was arrested Friday and charged with theft by taking and making false official documents.

Investigators say she used her position handling requests for expenditures and reimbursements to take somewhere between $7,000 and $8,000.    

"We began the investigation in July of 2006 in reference to some irregularities discovered in some of the accounting process," said Ronnie Thompson, GBI Special Agent in Charge.  

The GBI's investigation of Armfield stemmed from a request made by the board of commissioners and the district attorney.  

Armfield is suspected of taking the money between 2003 and 2004. She was released on $10,000 bond.
