Member of the Tax Board of Directors, Jerry Dick says they became suspicious of Tullar when they realized they needed a bank loan because funds were so low. The board decided to get Judge Executive John Wilson involved.

Wilson says he filed an open records request which then led them to Tullars deception. Wilson says they found thirty thousand dollars in checks wrtitten to the treasurer for bogus reimbursements.

The judge says he believes the scam went on for so long because Tullar kept two separate sets of books. Tullar was also the secretary and was preparing minutes and financial reports.

Tullar was indicted on sixteen counts but released on bond today.

    Who, What, When, Where, & How? The headline is more than a little misleading, and who is Tuller?

    Holy crap. The reason that our state is in such bad shape and the stupid governor is cutting money from all of the important things is because of people like this. I am sure a whole lot more people are doing the same thing.

    this wasn't a politician stealing. It was a politician who caught the stealing.

    This makes the 2nd time Ive read of a person in power stealing from a fire dept. The last time was in madison county where the waco volunteer fire dept cheif and his wife and daughter where all caught stealing close to 1million. And what happens to these politcal people? They are fined 50,000 and maybe recieve 3months jail. Then people wonder why the states broke when its run by old fashioned bible thumping charity plate stealing crooks.
