Audit of Oklahoma town uncovers missing money, equipment

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ An audit of the small town of Ryan in southern Oklahoma has uncovered more than $175,000 in missing cash and equipment over a two-year period.
 
State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones released the audit covering April 2013 through March on Thursday. Jones says in a statement that the town's former treasurer admitted in a videotaped interview that she embezzled the funds.
 
The former treasurer resigned in July, but no charges have been filed. The audit has been forwarded to District Attorney Jason Hicks, who requested the probe. The former treasurer's phone number has been disconnected.
 
The audit found that as much as $160,000 in customers' utility billing payments had been misappropriated and that more than $12,000 in unauthorized benefits were paid for the treasurer's husband.
