Three former Mississippi Department of Transportation employees have been indicted for misusing state fuel cards in an embezzlement scheme involving truck drivers.
Clyde Poole, Connie Shegog, and Torrie Willey have been indicted on one count each of embezzlement after allegedly using Fuelman cards to purchase fuel for truck drivers and then collecting cash from the drivers. They also reportedly used the cards to purchase fuel for their personal vehicles.
Shegog and Willey both left their positions at MDOT in September, while Poole left some time later.
According to an MDOT official, “MDOT does not tolerate the misuse of taxpayer dollars.”
