Naomi Lawrence-Lee, the former Beaumont school district purchasing agent, was arrested later Thursday by Jefferson County law enforcement authorities, booked into the Jefferson County Jail at 9:42 p.m. on a charge of felony theft and bonded out by 10 p.m. on a surety bond of $50,000. Lawrence-Lee, 47, 8010 N. Windemere Drive, was indicted by the May term, or special, grand jury, which alleged the former purchasing agent unlawfully appropriated U.S. current of at least $1,500, but less than $20,000 from the Beaumont Independent School District that had come into her custody by virtue of her status as a public service. Crenshaw said the case resulted from the Joint Task Force investigation established in March 2014 between the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Texas and the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office to investigate and prosecute major crimes - more specifically, violent crime and crimes related to the abuse of public trust in Jefferson County.
