Glendale Union High School District—Criminal Indictment—Theft and Misuse of Public Monies


As part of its responsibility to prevent and detect fraud, the Glendale Union High School District (District) took appropriate action by reporting a fraud allegation to our Office. Our investigation revealed that from May 2015 through July 2017, Eunice Lopez, former attendance secretary at Sunnyslope High School, may have misappropriated $3,455 of Sunnyslope student parking permit payments and used them for her own personal purposes. We have submitted our report to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, which presented evidence to the Arizona State Grand Jury on August 27, 2018. The action resulted in Ms. Lopez’s indictment on five felony counts related to theft, misuse of public money, and fraudulent schemes.
