A county employee in Georgia has been arrested on charges of misusing official credit cards for personal gain, according to the Glynn County Police Department. The 50-year-old man, who worked for the Glynn County Public Works Department, allegedly spent nearly $300,000 in unauthorized transactions.

The investigation began when county officials noticed suspicious transactions on the employee’s and other employees’ issued credit cards. On September 11, investigators from the Glynn County Police Department and the Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office interviewed the employee, who had been with the county since August 2010 and served as an administrative supervisor since May 2018.

During the investigation, it was determined that the employee had unlawfully used his Glynn County issued Purchase Card and other employees’ Purchase Cards for his own personal gain. The employee admitted to these actions and has been charged with theft by conversion, involving more than $290,000.

Details regarding the duration of the misconduct and the specific expenditures are currently part of the ongoing investigation and have not been disclosed at this time. Glynn County is located approximately 80 miles south of Savannah, Georgia.
