City Of Dayton Employee Under Investigation
DAYTON -- A Dayton city employee is under investigation for allegedly stealing government money. Someone tipped off the city last week after noticing a questionable transaction. There was a quick audit and within days, the employee was fired.
The accused employee, Christen Turner, used to work for the Dayton Law Department. She was put on administrative leave from her clerical position last Friday. On Monday she received a letter saying she was fired.
"In addition to removing the employee as soon as the illegal activity was discovered, we will pursue every measure possible to recover any public funds in question," said City Manager Tim Riordan.
"In one way it's good that this isn't somthing that, in my entire time as Chief, have experienced nothing like this involving a city employee. So it's extremely rare," said Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl.
At a news conference late Friday afternoon, we learned Turner is now under investigation by Dayton Police for theft in office. She hasn't been charged or arrested.
We went to her house to get her side of the story, but no one answered the door.
Turner has been working for the city since 1996 with no issues until now. Police are still trying to figure out how much money is missing.
"These investigations are never simple. We're looking at hundreds of transactions dating back years, so it'll be a slow and meticulous process. It's going to take weeks, months to get to the bottom of it," said Chief Biehl.
Riordan plans to put new procedures in place to help prevent something like this from happening in the future. However, right now it's unclear exactly what changes will take place.
