Salvation Army, parks and rec employee investigated for possible embezzlement

NORFOLK — A man working for both the Salvation Army and the Chesapeake Parks and Recreation Department is being investigated by Chesapeake police in connection to possible embezzlement.

Police believe that on several occasions, the man clocked into work at the parks and recreation department before leaving the building to work at the Ray and Joan Kroc Center for the Salvation Army in Norfolk, according to documents filed in Norfolk Circuit Court.

Documents state that the man returned to the parks and recreation department later on those days to clock out.

During a search of the Salvation Army, police found the man’s time card records which showed five different dates when he was clocked in for both jobs.

The Salvation Army confirmed that the man had been working at the Ray and Joan Kroc Center since November 2015, court documents show.

Southside Daily is not publishing the name of the man being investigated as charges have not been filed.

The Chesapeake Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
