Our investigation revealed that
from August 1999 to August 2002, the former administrative services director and
a former accountant allegedly embezzled at least $47,267 from the City of Sierra
Vista by misusing the Cityís travel expense process and credit card privileges.
We submitted our findings to the Arizona Attorney Generalís Office, and on
January 13, 2005, the Maricopa County Superior Court issued a two-count
indictment including theft and fraudulent schemes against both individuals.
