Fuel charges being investigated

  • Follow Latest News

Richmond County sheriff’s investigators are looking into thousands of dollars of suspicious fuel charges coming from the county’s animal services department.

Several employees were interviewed by police this morning after about $10,000 in fuel charges showed up in the department’s records, according to Lt. Tony Walden.

“We have video, and we know for a fact some of those gas cards were used to put gas in personal vehicles,” Lt. Walden said.

Employees are given Fuelman gasoline cards and their own PIN number for county-owned vehicles. However, it appears that the same PIN was used a number of times on separate cards, Lt. Walden said.

“I suspect that we’re going to end up with more than one person involved,” he said.
