Former Greenwood Police Officer Surrenders on Fraud Charges

Chicot Memorial

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — A former Greenwood police officer has turned herself in on a two-count indictment charging her with defrauding the city by submitting false time sheets. 44-year-old Erica Scott was indicted on one count each of embezzlement and fraudulent statements. Scott allegedly claimed more than 600 hours on time sheets in 2016 that she did not work, resulting in overpayments of more than $10,000. She will be arraigned next week in Leflore County Circuit Court. If convicted, Scott faces up to 25 years in jail – 20 on the embezzlement charge and five on the fraudulent statements charge.
