LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the former head of a support group for those living with down syndrome.

Randy Burkhaulter is charged with stealing from the group "Better Understanding of Down Syndrome" or BUDS.

A Lubbock County Grand Jury indicted him on the charge Tuesday, and authorities signed the warrant on Wednesday.

According to the indictment, the theft occurred between April 2011 and October 2012.

Burkhaulter served as BUDS' president during that time.

The group's board of directors released a statement to us claiming that Burkhaulter admitted the theft to their attorney, saying "We are pressing charges on Randy Burkhaulter as a Board and on behalf of members of BUDS and all of our donors who have so generously given funds to BUDS."

They say a review found nearly $15,000 unaccounted for.

Burkhaulter has not yet been arrested, according to county jail records.
