SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - The former treasurer for Swanson Highlands Pool made an appearance in court Wednesday.

Amy Burris is charged with a felony and four misdemeanors. Documents show she stole nearly $66,000 of the pool's money. Officials say Burris used the money for personal items, including a hotel room for a family vacation, between 2015 and 2017.

The pool was not initially able to recover the missing funds and had to close its doors in 2017. It was able to reopen last year thanks to fundraising from the community.

Burris will be back in court for another status conference on April 22.
