Employees for the City of Winnfield were found to have stolen about $10 thousand of gasoline from the city, but are still on the payroll, according to the latest audit released this morning. The employees are repaying the money via payroll deduction, the report said.

Condition – The system of internal control over fuel purchases was inadequate, as a result employees of the City of Winnfield were found using the City’s fuel cards for personal use. The employees admitted to the misappropriation but were not terminated, reimbursement for admitted amounts of $240 each are being withheld by payroll deductions At this time, the amount misappropriated and the exact time period over which the theft occurred are unknown, however we have estimated the misappropriation to be at least $10,000.

New procedures have been established to prevent future fuel card abuse.

This stinks! These thieves are working for the City of Winnfield yet the city boss doesn't know how much was stolen or how long this pipeline has been running. Are the thieves not talking? Yet they are still on the payroll. OMG, when does football season start so we don't have to hear anymore about this?

Just how many employees does the city have? To have only $240 paid back by payroll deduction by the ones who admitted stealing from taxpayers would take a lot of employees to pay back $10,000. In fact it would take 41.66666 employees . For a town with population less than 6000 that's a lot of employees.

Surely, only a small proportion of city employees would be authorized to use City of Winnfield credit cards? If so, it should be pretty easy to identify the thieves. Wonder what else they've stolen?

Best way to deter future theft is jail time for the guilty parties.

Why do the city employees who stole gasoline using taxpayers credit cards still have their jobs ,, pay , retirement and health benefits? Are they related to the administrator who let this slip by until the auditors found it?
They should be punished just like any other citizen who used stolen credit cards. Something is amiss. Did this happen in the Police department, under the chief of Police or public works department under the Mayor?

It doesn't really matter which department it happened in... We all know that this sort of thing is typical of cruddy old Winnfield. They weren't prosecuted because they've got something on the person able to prosecute, or it was the boss's brother-in-law, or because their relative can get the boss fired, or the usual manipulating baloney that Winnfield people operate on. That's Winnfield, and that's why I always say Winnfield is a cruddy town!!!

When the people are taxed so much that theft of $10,000 dollars in fuel costs goes un-noticed until auditors discover the abuse , it is time to lower taxes to reduce the discretionary money in the town's till.
If every dollar had to be accounted for and had to be spent for necessary services to the people, then the crime of theft would be noticed much sooner. Too much money in the coffers is not good. Let the earners keep more of their money. We don't need thieves using our money!

Lincoln Parish News Online stays busy just reporting corruption by elected officials.
Here are a few caught in corruption and mis-use of tax monies: Gibsland Mayor, Homer Mayor, Port Allen Mayor, and Jonesboro Mayor.
Richwood Mayor also mis used public funds,
There is a thread that runs through these corrupt pubic figures. It's not hard to figure it out.
Be careful, Winnfield citizens who you select for Mayor.

A West Baton Rouge Parish grand jury indicted Brusly Police Chief Jamie Whaley on charges of theft and malfeasance in office Thursday.

Whaley surrendered to West Baton Rouge Parish authorities after he was accused of using a town-issued credit card to purchase gasoline for his personal truck and boat.

Whaley, 36, was booked into the West Baton Rouge Parish Jail on counts of theft and malfeasance in office following an investigation by the state Inspector General’s Office and the FBI.

The proper authority should call the state inspector general and the FBI, It's not too late. I don't know who is responsible to do this. Perhaps the District Attorney?

Proper punishment

Proper punishment is the only way to stop corruption. Thieves stole gasoline from all taxpayers by illegal use of our credit cards.
Where is the "public servant" who es elected to be stewards of our coffers? Why didn't our elected one put a stop to the misuse of tax dollars and seek FULL retribution of stolen gasoline,
IN contrast to Winfield officials some one does care that taxpayers are protected from thieves. http://www.knoe.com/story/25536948/abbeville-...

What did BR do about it? Someone should make these people accountable and get tax payers money back. I heard it was water light crew. Look at the people who work for the city- sex offenders ( how do they legally go to the city gym or parks). They don't suppose to be around anywhere where kids are. Many don't have driver's license but drive city vehicles and drink alcohol while working. Someone from the outside need to help.
