A well-known Barrow County community leader has been arrested for theft of money from Adult Literacy Barrow. The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Dr. Robert Ronald Saunders, of Winder, for felony theft by taking.
Saunders is the executive director of Adult Literacy Barrow and the former superintendent of the Barrow County School System.
The arrest was made as part of the BCSO investigation into possible financial fraudulent activity of the finances of Adult Literacy Barrow. The Board of Directors of Adult Literacy Barrow were notified of some suspicious activity on July 18, and notified the BCSO.
"The board of directors of the Adult Literacy Barrow discovered some possible suspicious activity in their finances," officials with that organization said in a press release on July 20. "They contacted the BCSO and immediately turned over all records to them for investigation and are cooperating completely."
Saunders will be booked into the Barrow County Detention Center where he will be held until he receives a bond.
This is an on-going investigation and the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office will release more information as it becomes available. There is a possibility of additional charges as the investigation continues.
Saunders has been executive director of the organization since 2012. The 23-year-old program was previously known as the Winder-Barrow Coalition for Adult and Continuing Education. It offers GED and English as a Second Language courses.
