According to police documents, Sharon Mattern, owner of Desert Dentistry, noticed a discrepancy between her profit and deposit amounts. A detailed audit revealed that cash deposits were missing from the Payson office.
The audit showed that between 2000 and 2003, Schrank was pocketing up to $1,000 per month at times from the office income. The estimated total was $35,650.
Wortman said Schrank was involved in youth football, but did not know when or how she took money from the organization.
The matter was handed over to the Payson Police Department and investigated by Payson Police Det. Steve Johnson.
According to Johnson, Schrank initially denied taking the money but as the interview went on, she eventually confessed to the theft. Johnson also recalled that Schrank used the extra money to support her children and not for any luxury items.
