From Sandy Louey:
Sacramento police officers are investigating two former nonprofit employees for allegedly stealing money from the organization and have arrested one of them.
Olivia Armstead and another person were employees with SAR, or Service Advocacy Respect for persons with mental disabilities/developmental disabilities until their firings last year, said Jacob Richey, board president for SAR.
Armstead, who was the office manager, was arrested Wednesday on a warrant for embezzlement, police said. She allegedly created fictitious payroll checks to herself, said Officer Konrad Von Schoech, Sacramento Police Department spokesman.
Von Schoech sad police are investigating the second former employee for embezzlement, but no charges have been filed.
That person, who The Bee is not naming because he has not been arrested, allegedly set up another buyer for the donated items. Those items were sold and he allegedly pocketed about $100,000 in cash for them, Richey said.
