SNOW HILL, GREENE COUNTY -

Two former directors of Snow Hill EMS have been charged for allegedly embezzling almost $150,000 combined, investigators said.

According to Snow Hill Police Chief John Rea, 59-year-old Patsy Carraway Ransom, of Snow Hill, and 51-year-old Sue Ann Farmer, of Ayden, were arrested on March 19 and have both been charged with felony embezzlement.

Ransom worked as the director of Snow Hill EMS from June 2003 to June 2011. During that span, she allegedly embezzled $132,700.72, warrants state.

Farmer worked as the director of Snow Hill EMS from July 2011 to October 2013, during which she embezzled $16,000, said Chief Rea.

Snow Hill EMS discovered the money was missing when a new EMS director took over in October.

Ransom was issued a $40,000 bond and Farmer was given a $5,000 bond, according to warrants. Both suspects have since bonded out of jail.

A probable cause hearing for Ransom is set to be held on May 9, warrants state. Farmer's court date is scheduled to be held on April 25.

Both suspects had also worked as part-time dispatchers with the Greene County Sheriff's Office, Chief Rea said.

In addition, Ransom had worked as a dispatcher for ECU Police, according to investigators.
