BROOKFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Brookfield’s former school finance chief has been charged with larceny and forgery over accusations he tried to claim reimbursement for three iPads he never purchased.
Art Colley resigned from the district in February 2014 on reports he overspent the district’s budget.
Police say he submitted a $987 invoice accompanied by forged receipts. The News-Times reports that police say the sum involved is insufficient for a second-degree offense, but the charge was increased because it involves an allegation the public was defrauded.
Acting Brookfield Superintendent Ralph Iassogna says an inventory failed to turn up the iPads, which are generally purchased in bulk.
The 57-year-old Colley does not have a listed phone number and the newspaper reports that calls to his office were unanswered Monday.
It was not known Tuesday if he’s represented by a lawyer.
