A former Volunteer Energy accountant has been charged with theft over $250,000. The investigation conducted by the State Comptroller’s Office revealed that Jason Kittle concealed the embezzled funds through fraudulent transactions in the company’s accounting system. The records were made to look like online payments, returns or similar transactions. Kittle also managed to reconcile VEC’s bank account statements which allowed the theft to remain undetected for a year. Kittle is said to have stolen more than $994,000 from June 2011 through December 2017.
