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.
