Former senior citizen center director charged in $100K embezzlement

A man previously employed as a manager at an Arkansas City, Arkansas, senior citizen center was charged with stealing more than $100,000 of donations and other accounts payable funds.

Edward Greene turned himself in as the sole source of illegal financial losses for the Arkansas City Senior Citizens Center, according to The Arkansas City Traveler. The source claims Greene was working on hourly payment at a rate of $18.35 at the end of his time with the organization, but an accounts payable audit showed he acquired funds in a variety of ways between 2007 and 2012. KAKE-TV reports he left his post in September of last year.

The Traveler claims voluntary financial gifts were a part of the funds Greene tapped for personal use, and all other amounts came from the organization's basic budget expense accounts. While the source does not name specifics pertaining to a possible AP recovery, audit solutions found Greene had misappropriated between $25,000 and $100,000 of the center's finances by transferring money from its accounts to his own in addition to illegally obtaining several unspecified means of property valued between $1,000 and $100,000. The Traveler says the crimes were discovered in a public works accounts payable audit ordered by new city officials working in the municipality's management and administrative offices.
