While an investigation continues, information on a local embezzlement case will be postponed. Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier issued a statement in the past week in regards to the case.
“The Valley County Sheriff's Office is in the process of investigating a large theft by embezzlement case from the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council,” the statement read. “This is an ongoing investigation, which began in March.”
According to Meier, due to the large amount of funds involved, the investigation has been complex. It is the intension of the sheriff's office that a thorough investigation be completed before charges are filed.
Meier explained that certain processes involving the case take time, and once the investigation is complete information will be released.
