Posted by CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA  -  Patricia Casas, a  Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) employee is scheduled to be arraigned Monday for stealing money that had been paid by customers for services, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office.

 Casas, 44, Anaheim, is charged with four felony counts of misappropriation of public funds, four felony counts of falsification and concealment of public accounts, and four felony counts of computer access and fraud. I

On four occasions between July 28, 2010, and Feb. 15, 2011, Casas is accused of charging four customers for services at the Westminster DMV office and accepting cash payments from them. After the transaction, the defendant is accused of changing the previous cash fees in the computer system to show as a "no fee transaction" to make it look as if the services she provided were free. The defendant is accused of taking a total of $106. 

On Feb. 15, 2011, Casas' supervisor became suspicious after a customer complained that he did not receive change following a transaction with Casas. The case was reported to the California DMV Investigations Division, who investigated the case and arrested Casas today, April 19, 2012.
