Four former officials from the city of Beaumont have a combined $14.6 million deposited in 47 bank accounts, reports the Desert Sun. Interesting. I guess working in city government pays way better than you could have possibly imagined – or, more likely, prosecutors may have some pretty good evidence against them in those charges of embezzling money from the city.
Here is how the money breaks down:
- David William Dillon, former economic development director, $6.1 million in 11 accounts
- Alan Kapanicas, former city manager, $1.7 million in four accounts
- Ernest Egger, former city planner, $3.7 million in six accounts
- Deepak Moorjani, former public works director, $3 million in 23 accounts
The money has been frozen in the accounts and is in addition to homes and property that has already been reported to be owned by the same officials.
“Where there is smoke there is fire,” Beaumont Mayor Mike Lara told the newspaper.
The suspects, along with 3 other former city officials, have pleaded not guilty.
