CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- More than $30,000 is missing from the Kolob Regional Care and Rehabilitation Center, Administrator Glade Hamilton said.

He said he and the center's controller found a discrepancy in the accounting records approximately one month ago, which led to an investigation by police.

"There is no tolerance for something like that or anything dishonest," said Hamilton. "We are handling the situation appropriately with full involvement by local law enforcement and the health department."

Theft of more than $5,000 is a second-degree felony punishable by a maximum sentence of one to 15 years in prison.
