OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- Olathe police are investigating a report of a possible theft of more than $10,000 from an school's parent-teacher organization.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/19k1LMA ) $10,640 was reportedly taken from PTO funds from Westview Elementary School between August 2010 and the end of June this year.

It's the second time this year that PTO funds have been reported missing at a Johnson County school. In April, about $30,000 was reported missing from the PTO at Valley Park Elementary School in Overland Park. Prosecutors have charged the former treasurer of the Valley Park PTO with felony theft.

John Hutchison, chief financial and operations officer for the Olathe school district, says school PTOs are independent from their schools and keep their funds funds separate from school district funds.
