Alpena County Fair Board Member Arrested for Embezzlement

An Alpena County fair board member is behind bars Friday, accused of embezzling an unknown amount of money from the organization.

The sheriff’s office received a complaint back in February from the county fair board over concerns that one of its members had been embezzling money over a three year span.

The Alpena County prosecutor issued a six count felony warrant for that member’s arrest, and they’re now being held at the Alpena County jail on a $40,000 bond.

It’s not clear yet when they’re set to be arraigned.
