Lots Of Special Benefits – if You Don’t Get Caught

COAHOMA COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Some jobs in Coahoma County apparently come with lots of special benefits. As long as you don’t get caught like the three women arrested for using their employers money as their own this past week. The state auditor’s investigation took more than two years, but former Coahoma Tourism Commission Executive Director Kappi Allen was arrested Monday after being indicted for embezzlement. Allen is accused of making over $36,000 in personal purchases with commission credit cards and pocketing $57,000 in unapproved payroll checks over a four-year period. Separately, two former Coahoma Community College employees have also been arrested and charged with misappropriating over $750,000. Gwendolyn Jefferson and Stacie Neal allegedly used CCC credit cards to buy shoes, watches, a chandelier, and other items from 2013 to 2017. In September the state issued demands for more than $980,000, including interest and investigation costs. Jefferson was arrested Monday for conspiracy and embezzlement and Neal was arrested for conspiracy, embezzlement and false representation. All are free on $5000 bail.
