A Wichita Falls woman faces an enhanced theft charge in connection with the disappearance of more than $50,000 from a ministry.

42-year-old Jennifer Bohanon was jailed on $25,000 bond, and is no longer in Wichita County jail.

According to the arrest affidavit, Jay Lowder, president of Harvest Ministries, called police to report an employee had embezzled funds from the office at 700 8th Street.

Lowder reported that from late 2008 to early this year, an undetermined amount of money had been taken by Bohanon.

He said Bohanon opened an American Express card in the ministries’ name to buy personal items and and made bank transfers from the ministries’ account.

He provided records showing checks made payable to Bohanon and entries showing the checks were recorded as paid to someone else.

Among the payments were mortgage payments made to U.S. Bank for a home on Dirks Drive.

The latest estimate of the losses totals about $52,000.

The charge is enhanced because it involves a non-profit organization.
