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. As the executive director’s assistant, she was one of nine people with an agency credit card, according to records assembled for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in October.”
