Update (6/24/11): Goochland County Auditor of Public Accounts Walter J. Kucharski reports alleged embezzlement by former Goochland Treasurer Brenda S. Grubbs is $180,470.
Update (8/29/11): According to media reports, Grubbs, who has pleaded guilty to a 20-count indictment earlier this month in this case, funneled much of the misappropriated funds to a "shadowy" figure in Nigeria named "Bobby Johnson". Grubbs reportedly met the man through an online dating website and claimed he was from Virginia, working in Nigeria. Authorities believe Grubbs may have been scammed herself.
