Thousands of dollars is missing from Munson Medical Center, and the former manager of food and nutrition services accused of taking it.

Right now, there is a warrant out for Jeffrey Ales' arrest.

Jeffery Ales was employed by Sodexo - the company contracted by Munson Medical Center to oversee their food and nutrition services.

He was working at Munson from May of 2008 until October of last year - when they realized there may be a problem.

Court records show Ales admitted to buying MasterCard gift cards with company money, and then using those for personal purposes that had nothing to do with work.

Munson's spokesperson says Ales is accused of embezzling about $27,000 dollars.

Attorney statement? or - 9&10 News reached out to Ales' attorney Gerald Chefalo, but he could not be reached for comment.

9&10's Marisa McKay and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson have more details on Ales' warrant, and next steps for Munson Medical Center.
