BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A former Brunswick County school board member was arrested Thursday on embezzlement charges.

According to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, Ray Gilbert was arrested on two counts of embezzlement.

Officials say the first count was in the amount of $1,128 from Jesse Mae Monroe Elementary School PTA and the second count was in the amount of $2,550 also from Jesse Mae Monroe Elementary School PTA.

The incidents happened between November, 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 and July, 1, 2012 and June 20, 2013.

According to the Jesse Mae Monroe PTA website, Gilbert served as president.

This is not the first run-in that Gilbert has had with the school board. Gilbert was banned from all county schools back in December of 2007 after a Brunswick High School secretary says she had a sexual relationship with Gilbert.
