Husband and wife formally indicted for alleged theft from co-op

FANNIN COUNTY, TX--Two people accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the Fannin County Co-op have been formally indicted.

Tabitha Caplinger and her husband, Jimmy Earl Caplinger have been charged with theft of over $200,000.

Tabitha was arrested on June 7th, on accusations that she stole from the co-op during her 20 years of employment.

Although her husband was not employed with the company, he is being charged as an accessory, and could face the same punishment.

The Caplinger's each face 5 to 99 years in prison, and a $10,000 fine.

    Steal 200,000, pay back 10. I guess crime does pay.

    Accept your punishment, serve your sentence. It seems that is what they're going to do. All the wild speculation means nothing. Two people got into something bad and it has ruined their lives.

    Supposedly only been going the past three to four years. Was embezzling or funneling I guess you could say big checks from out of the area commercial accounts. Never was hitting the books at FCEC.

    I agree with you Hello. 2 years of marriage should not be responsible for 20 years of this mess. There is an ex. Men and women do you know what your spouse is doing all the time, where they are, who they talk with and etc? If they tell you something do you believe them or question everything? If you believe them you might just wind up in a mess similar to this. A lot of questions need to be answered with this mess. I still can not understand how money can go missing and no one notices - but an investigator can locate it immediately. Were there - no inventory controls, no audits, no accountability, no budget - if you go under budget do you not investigate why? If your inventory is short do you not investigate why? If your revenue is short - do you not investigate why? Reports are verified by someone. This whole mess just leaves a bad cloud hanging with questions from all angles. An arrest of a husband of two years is an easy arrest and a fast for the public fix in my opinion - but when you stop and think for awhile this is not a fix in my opinion.

      I'm so glad somebody else brought up these questions. If this place is such a cash cow that one person was able to steal money for 20yrs., it does make you wonder if she was the only one doing it. Something isn't right with the whole deal here.

    So it’s been going on the 20 years she has worked there, but wasn't she married before? So why isn't her ex-husband and accessory as well? If I was Jimmy I would be all over that one. Take me down take eveyone else down as well.

      Fine, then I guess their kids better "go down" too. After all, they were also lucky recipients of that cash and all thatv came with it. Your logic is flawed.

      How would you know she's innocent? Ever heard the saying, "You think you know somebody."?

    I wonder if they hired a lawyer or they are using a public defender?

      They hired a good lawyer. I understand they were able to pay cash up front.

    I know Jimmy personally before he married Tammy. And he was the nicest person i knew. Personally i think Tammy should be the only one going to prison. Jimmy deserved nothing like this.

      So because he is 'nice' he doesn't deserve this? You really think she stole that much money and he didn't know about it? Yeah right.

    "Two people accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the Fannin County Co-op have been formally indicted." Shouldn't that be HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars?
