BCU investigates missing money
Police are looking into allegations of financial impropriety by a former employee of Bethune-Cookman University, according to a report.
According to the Daytona Beach police report, university President Trudie Kibbe Reed said unauthorized money was being disbursed from a work-aid program sometime between July 1, 2006, and Aug. 31, 2007.
University departments hire students under the program, according to the B-CU Web site.
University officials also are investigating, and the amount taken is unknown, the police report states.
A school news release says "one department budget exceeded allotted funds which then led to an investigation by the university." At least one employee did not follow policy and has been fired, according to the release.
