Tuesday, July 14th 2015. BMG: Some half a million dollars was cleverly siphoned from the Treasury last year. While four persons have already been charged, the extent of the scheme may be greater than previously reported.
Financial Secretary Joseph Waight told reporters on Monday that another transaction had been uncovered of about twenty five thousand dollars.
Also, the monies reportedly siphoned from the subvention for Toledo Community College were taken from October of 2013 and not 2014 as reported.
Police continue their investigations.
