Former Bookkeeper Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Embezzlement

TUCSON - Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced Mary McNabb, the former bookkeeper for the Arizona Conference of Police and Sheriffs ("AZCOPS"), was sentenced to 3 years in prison and 7 years probation for stealing from her former employer.

AZCOPS contacted the Tucson Police Department after discovering suspicious bookkeeping payments. TPD detectives lauched an investigation and discovered McNabb issued more than $195,000 in false payments to herself during her two years working for AZCOPS. Credit card statements indicate McNabb used the money to pay for personal expenses such as dinner and shopping.

McNabb pleaded guilty to one count of Theft and one count of Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Janet Bostwick also ordered McNabb to pay $227,749 in restitution to AZCOPS.

Assistant Attorney General Lindsay St. John prosecuted this matter.
