The Embezzlement-Go Round

About five months ago, when two relatively high profile embezzlement cases were winding their way through the court system, a Glenville Golf Club employee apparently decided to try to make off with what may have, at the time, looked like easy money.

That's what police allege in felony charges filed last week in magistrate court.

At the time there were certainly plenty of headlines concerning county employees being caught either stealing or misappropriating funds.

West Virginia State Police filed a criminal complaint against Jennifer Lynn Mullins, age 22, of Glenville.

According to the complaint, between April 15 and May 8 of this year Mullins took $2,419.20 from her employer.

The Glenville Golf Club has an ongoing lease with the county, owner of the property.

The county has no oversight responsibilities over the day-to-day operation of the golf course, sources said.

Mullins is accused of altering four bank deposits made at United Bank in Glenville. These deposits were made April 19, May 4, May 7, and May 8.

The complaint says Mullins changed the deposit total to a lesser amount than the cash she had, and kept the difference.

On April 15 and April 23 apparently Mullins bypassed making a deposit at all, opting to keep the entire amount of money entrusted to her.

If found guilty Jennifer Lynn Mullins could face a jail term from 1 to 10 years for her crime. Mullins has made a statement to police in the case.
