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.
