DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — A former Clarke University employee has been accused of stealing more than $300,000 from the school in a book vendor scheme.
James Spaulding, a former bookstore manager at the eastern Iowa school, faces one count of mail fraud and two counts of filing a false tax return. A message left with his attorney was not immediately returned Wednesday.
Authorities say Spaulding submitted invoices to buy books from a company he established in 2011 with a friend. He is accused of issuing checks for several invoices between 2011 and 2012. Authorities say Spaulding would later receive cashier's checks.
The Telegraph Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1Gt0EdH ) a hearing in the case is scheduled Thursday.
Clarke University reported the theft in April 2013 after an internal review of vendors.
