L.A. Rec center director steal thousands from kids
L.A. (BDCi) – A Los Angeles recreation center director has been accused of pocketing up to $15,000 from children at the facility.

Former director Carol Brandt, 47, of the Montecito Heights Recreation Center was arrested Tuesday (16) and faces felony charges of embezzlement and misappropriation of public funds.

She is accused of taking over $10,000 between 2009 and 2010 from people on sports teams who paid the center for use of its courts and fields.

Brandt has also been accused of stealing from the snack bar as well as from young participants in a summer camp.

City Controller Wendy Greuel (pictured above) launched an investigation following an alert from employees at the Department of Recreation and Parks.

The case has now been referred to the district attorney’s office.
