Man charged with stealing $63K from city account

(Continued)

“It is a priority that we recover 100 percent of the taxpayers’ money and that anyone who steals from the city be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” said Cahill, who went on to praise the diligence of both the city employees and police department in discovering and solving the crime.

While the investigation was ongoing, police discovered that Ribeiro was wanted on eight warrants in various courts around the state and took him into custody on those warrants last month.

Police are also conducting a forensic evaluation of his computer and cellphones.

Ribeiro, who could face indictment in the case because of the amount of money involved, is due back in court March 7.
