Former employee of Portsmouth Housing Authority is charged with embezzlement

From The Virginian-Pilot, “A former housing authority employee was indicted Thursday on four counts of embezzlement a month after The Virginian-Pilot reported that the case had stalled.

Kimberly Ward, who had been convicted of embezzlement at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters more than a decade ago, was hired last year as federal investigators were looking into weak accounting practices at the Portsmouth Redevelopment and Housing Authority.

Months later, the authority reported $8,000 in fraudulent charges to police and fired Ward.

While working as an assistant to the head pharmacist at Children’s Hospital in 2006, she stole more than $2,300 using a corporate credit card to make satellite TV and car insurance payments, according to court records.”
