Auditor Wants Nearly $1M Back from Clarksdale Embezzlers

CLARKSDALE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi State Auditor Shad White was in Clarksdale yesterday to officially announce the conclusion of a year-long embezzlement investigation. The state is demanding $981,000 from Stacie Neal and Gwendolyn Jefferson. Between 2013 and 2017 when the pair worked as purchasing agents at Coahoma Community College the money they took was converted to Kroger, Walmart, and Amazon gift cards. White called it a conspiracy involving multiple individuals and the nearly $1 million demand, one of the largest in state history, includes interest and cost of the investigation. District Attorney Brenda Mitchell must now decide if the case against Neal and Jefferson will go to a grand jury for possible criminal prosecution.
