Former University of Wisconsin Marathon County Dorm Manager Suspected of Theft


Wausau police are recommending embezzlement charges be filed against the former the Residence Hall Operations Manager at UW Marathon County.

He's suspected of stealing more than $25,000 from students between June, 2012 and January, 2013.

Investigators say he encouraged them to pay him housing, food, parking and other fees in cash.

But instead of giving the money to the school, he kept it himself.

Police say a check of his financial records show he paid off thousands of dollars worth of overdue bills during that time.

The school discovered the problem in February, fired the man and called the police.

UWMC told investigators they would not require the students to re-pay the money that appears stolen. The school would just take the financial loss.

The dorm houses both UWMC and North Central Technical College students
