The former manager of the borough of Munhall was recently arrested on suspicion of theft.
The 44 year-old former manager of Munhall suddenly quit his job in June 2013, leaving the borough’s government in a state of deep financial uncertainty. At the time, it had been three years since the borough had undergone mandatory audits. Now, the borough’s former manager is being charged with having overpaid himself more than $230,000.
In order to execute the alleged theft police say that the suspect manipulated the borough’s payroll records by omitting payroll reports and falsifying records, and hence was able to disguise the fraud. In covering up his alleged crimes, the suspect is accused of also having avoided doing payroll altogether at times, and in one situation failed to pay emergency responders for six weeks.
In a complaint filed with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office, police are charging suspect with four counts of theft by deception. He is currently in Allegheny County Jail, being held on $100,000 bond.
