Felony Theft Arrest

For Immediate Release
March 7, 2017

Arrest2On February 16, 2016, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by the Montgomery United Methodist Church (MUMC) in reference to a possible case of employee theft from their day care facility, Tomorrow's Promise Preschool.

During the investigation, Detectives learned that from 2009 to 2015, the MUMC employed Gina Denise Sarver as the director of the Tomorrow's Promise preschool. Sarver left MUMC in March of 2015 to begin her own day care facility, Mimi's Little Scholars Christian Academy, Montgomery, Texas. Mimi's Little Scholars Christian Academy subsequently closed in January of 2017, citing financial troubles.

Upon Sarver’s departure, MUMC's finance department reintegrated the bookkeeping system from the preschool into the general church bookkeeping program. Upon doing so they noticed several abnormalities in the books, and found that approximately $20,000 worth of funds was unaccounted for.

arrest1The investigation showed that Sarver was having clients leave the payee line blank on their tuition checks. Sarver would then write the checks out to cash and would cash them at either her personal bank or at the bank from which the check was drawn.

On March 2, 2017, Detectives arrested Gina Sarver in the 8800 Forest Lake Dr., Montgomery, TX 77316 for Felony Theft.
