Update: Former Nebraska Ice Rink Manager Accused Of Embezzling $1 Million

Patrick A. Meschede, 48, of West Omaha, Nebraska, has been accused of embezzling nearly $1 million from the Moylan Ice Arena at Tranquility Park where he had been employed since 2004 as manager. According to a civil suit filed by the company against him and his wife Cindy, Meschede issued checks from its checking account to CPC Inc., a business he formed in 2000. He then deposited some of those funds into his personal accounts at American National Bank. Meschede also allegedly wrote checks to third party vendors to pay for personal expenses. He was arrested this past January on three felony counts of theft by deception. Additional charges have been added and he now faces 30 felony fraud counts. The thefts reportedly occurred over a three year period from 2006 - 2009. We note that in 2001, Meschede was sued by a prior employer for allegedly engaging in financial improprieties.
