Fairfax County police have arrested a former Westbriar Elementary School employee for alleged financial crimes.
Police said in a press release today (Monday) that Adebisi Ogun “misappropriated credit card funds and forged the principal’s signature on checks for her personal use over a period of one year while Ogun worked as an administrative assistant” at the Vienna school.
“Detectives began their investigation in August 2018 after school officials became aware of fraudulent credit card activity,” police said. “After a thorough investigation, detectives obtained arrest warrants in Sept. 2018.”
Ogun, 29 from New York, was arrested in New York on Jan. 15 and extradited to Fairfax County, police said. Ogun has been charged with embezzlement, forgery and uttering.
