Apparently he had a free hand to help himself at the cash registers. A man, an accountant in an association for the disabled, was arrested on Monday by soldiers from the Research Brigade (BR) of the Villefranche-de-Lauragais company, supported by gendarmes from the Castanet Brigades-Tolosan community.
This man is suspected of embezzling money for more than six years, causing total damage estimated at more than 500,000 euros. The investigations of the military, especially those specialized in financial analysis, made it possible to trace him back to him. Four other people were arrested at the same time. They are suspected of profiting from these misappropriated funds. The accountant and his beneficiaries were arrested in Gers, Tarn-et-Garonne and Puy-de-Dôme.
According to the first elements of the investigation, the man at the head of these infidelity and concealment facts would have forged a number of documents in order to be able to recover this money. The five people, three women and two men, all over 40 years of age, are currently in police custody. The association’s treasurer must be brought before an examining magistrate this Tuesday morning.
