BISD terminates warehouse supervisor over timecard discrepancies

BISD terminates warehouse supervisor over timecard discrepancies

When officials overseeing payroll at the Beaumont Independent School District learned Friday, May 25, of overtime discrepancies coming from the maintenance department, punishment was swiftly handed down on the employee suspected of stealing funds. Aside from losing his job, the former employee – revealed in an Examiner investigation to be warehouse supervisor Daryl Johnson – was also referred to the BISD Police Department on allegations the maintenance worker billed BISD for persons who never performed any work for the district.

News of the employee’s separation from BISD was released the same day Johnson was fired – first to school board members from retiring superintendent Carrol Thomas, and then to the media via assistant district spokesman Craig Eichhorn.

“Thomas told school board trustees today that it appears the fired employee had designed a scheme to pay two persons for work who did not work for BISD. In essence, it appears that the persons were paid wages for work not done,” Eichhorn stated in the district’s official news release May 25. “The district’s police department is conducting a detailed investigation and expects to turn over all information to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office as quickly as possible.”

BISD PD Detective Sgt. Danny Moore said he couldn’t comment on the suspect’s identity, but could confirm his agency received a complaint alleging a maintenance worker was stealing payroll dollars from BISD on Friday, May 25. 

“We are on the case,” Moore said. “It’s a complex investigation, so it will take a little time to complete. But the public can rest assured whoever perpetrated a crime against Beaumont taxpayers will be prosecuted to he fullest extent of the law.”

Huh?

What are you saying, rb?

That the I.R.S. should go after Mr. Johnson to collect taxes from his ill-gotten gains or that BISD should be responsible for payroll tax on them?

Surely you jest if you think any justice will be meted out by the same agency that got bilked out of billions by identity thieves in a tax refund scandal? Your naive faith in the government it heart warming even though.

Taxpayer funds should be properly accounted for

One can only hope that if BISD does recover the funds from the sources who were inappropriately paid, the IRS will make certain that the ill-gotten funds were properly accounted for along with the appropriate taxes paid for in full.

Now, how about accounting for the overpayment of BISD funds paid to Walker . . and the Federal funds provided to the Hardin County Disaster Recovery Alliance?
