Tulsa city employees accused of embezzling

Two men who worked for the City of Tulsa have been accused of embezzling money from the city while employed there.

Court records show that a warrant was put out for one of the employees, who the documents claim stole over $21,700. The second man is accused of stealing even more -- in excess of $135,000. Investigators say he was given a credit card that was linked to the city, presumably to use for official purchases, but he bought things for himself instead for about four years.

The cards had been given to the men so they could buy necessary items for the Water and Sewer Department in Tulsa.

The second man has already been arrested. He was picked up, bond was posted and he was allowed to go until his trial. Though a warrant has been issued for the other man, as noted above, he hasn't been arrested as of the most recent reports.

According to an official statement, the first man -- who allegedly stole over $21,000 -- bought items that were intended for the city and then simply did not give them to the city. The second man, with the larger bill, has been accused of altering invoices and making false statements to cover up personal purchases.

These serious accusations could land the men behind bars for years and make it all but impossible for them to find similar work when they are released. That's why it's so important for all who are accused of crimes to make sure they get a fair trial. The outcome can change their lives forever, and that type of impact has to be respected.
