Municipal Embezzlement Investigation in Idaho Referred to the US Attorney

From the Bonner County Daily Bee on 12/21/2014:

An investigation into the alleged embezzlement of money from the City of Athol, [Idaho] has essentially wrapped, and the evidence has been given to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

“Our investigation into the matter is complete,” said Kootenai County Sheriff Lt. Stu Miller. “The case has been referred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for review and possible prosecution.”

Traci Whelan said the U.S. Attorney’s office has received the investigation from the sheriff’s office and the U.S. Secret Service, however it cannot comment on an active investigation.
No charges have been filed in the case yet.


Note: this means that the loss is likely to be greater than $100,000.

Update (2/9/15): Read the update of this story hereSally Hansen has been charged with embezzling $417,879 from the city between 2009 and 2014.
