Former executive at non-profit charged with embezzlement
THREE RIVERS, Mich. -- The former executive director of Three Rivers Area Mentoring, Randall Norton, has been charged with embezzlement, according to Three Rivers Police.
In January 2019, detectives met with board members of the non-profit about allegations of embezzlement against its outgoing executive director, reports said.
An audit found a misuse of the organization's debit card, fraudulent reports made to the board about the accounts, missing cash deposits and grants that were not applied for to sustain their mission, according to police.
During the investigation, almost $10,000 was identified as personal expenses paid out to Norton and just over $11,000 was identified as excess payroll paid to Norton, reports said.
Norton has been charged with one count of embezzlement $1,000 to $20,000 from a nonprofit charitable organization.
