Former Treasurer Of Washington State-Based Charity Indicted For Allegedly Embezzling $112K

Randall Morrison, 49, formerly of Kirkland, Washington and currently of Talahassee, Florida, has been indicted on charges he embezzled more than $112,000 from the Ronald McDonald House Holiday Cruise where he had served as treasurer.  According to prosecutors, overa a period of about 3 years, from 2006 until 2009, Morrison wrote checks and wired funds to what appears to be a legitimate charity but which was under his control and for his own benefit.  Morrison reportedly moved to Ohio but kept handling the charity's financial affairs by e-mail.  The thefts were discovered after his Ohio employer reportedly discovered him embezzling funds and was terminated by them and who then reported suspicious activity to the charity.
