Former Merriam court clerk accused of embezzling $100K


From Joe Lambe and Bob Cronkleton:

The former lead clerk of the Merriam Municipal Court has been charged with embezzling more than $100,000.

Johnson County prosecutors on Monday charged Fabiola E. Cruz, 35, of Shawnee, with one count of theft of more than $100,000 and four counts of a computer crime.

The money was taken from 2008 to 2010, according to court records, and there is a chance more losses will be discovered, said Phil Lammers, Merriam city administrator. Cruz worked as a court clerk from April 2002 until she resigned last September, he said.
