Employees allegedly conspired to steal funds

From The Detroit News: A federal grand jury has indicted two former Detroit Public Schools employees on fraud conspiracy charges. Toni D. Gilbert, 44, was a district payroll manager, and Anton V. Carter, 55, was a painter with the district's maintenance department. Carter continued to receive paychecks after he retired and was no longer entitled to receive them, the indictment alleges. Gilbert allegedly issued payroll checks to Carter for thousands of dollars, and Carter would subsequently deposit cash payments ranging from $2,000 to $4,400 into Gilbert's personal checking account.
