Dispatch center manager accused of falsifying time sheets
MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) — The manager of an eastern Iowa county dispatch and communications center is accused faking hours on her time sheets, hours that investigators say she spent working as a bartender.
Muscatine County court records say 46-year-old Beverly Griffith is charged with misdemeanor records tampering. The records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for her.
An arrest affidavit says she recorded hours on several time sheets in January and February that she didn’t work because she was tending bar.
The Muscatine Journal reports that Griffith was hired May 31 to manage the Muscatine County dispatch center after spending the past 10 years as a dispatch supervisor in Naples, Florida. She’s been placed on administrative leave.
