Embezzlement investigation finds at least $28K missing
(WOUB) - Prosecutors say an embezzlement investigation involving a former employee in the Lawrence County treasurer's Office puts losses at $28,000 and counting.

County Treasurer Stephen Burcham says he fired the suspected employee late last year after tightening department security involving cash drawers and receipts.

Prosecutor J.B. Collier says the suspect is paying back the stolen money.

Collier says he's waiting to file charges until the next tax bills come due.

He says it's because there may be more money missing than the $28,000 tallied so far.
