Police investigate possible embezzlement at Papa John's on Missouri State University campus

Police are investigating thefts of money over several months from a food service vendor on Missouri State University’s campus.

Spokeswoman Lisa Cox said police are “investigating possible embezzlement” by employees at Papa John’s Pizza in the Plaster Student Union.

“Cases of suspicion have been documented over time,” Cox said. No arrests have been made.

According to a report released Tuesday, the thefts have been happening since early May.

The report lists Chartwells — a food service management company that was hired by the university — as the victim.

An MSU Board of Governors decision in April 2011 approved a 13-year contract worth an estimated $29 million with Chartwells. For 15 years prior to that, MSU had used Sodexo.

Chartwells polled students and made changes to the restaurant lineup at the student union, including adding Papa John’s.

Chartwells declined to comment on the incident.
