Crookston man accused of stealing thousands of dollars by clocking in extra hours
CROOKSTON TOWNSHIP, Minn.—People in one area township say they want their money back after accusing a former maintenance worker of clocking extra hours.
Crookston Township has been embattled in recent years over issues surrounding a tenured employee.
A forensic investigation has revealed the man allegedly took more than $25,000 in pay.
One member of the township's board says they looked at road maintenance costs from nearby areas and discovered a discrepancy.
"It just seemed like we were spending a little more on our road maintenance, well actually it was a lot more than our neighboring townships," said Dean Adams, Crookston Township Chair.
