Ian Anderson, a recreation supervisor employed by the city of Pleasanton, was arrested Thursday and charged with embezzling $300 worth of city services for his personal benefit.
Anderson surrendered to Pleasanton police detectives and was booked at Santa Rita Jail after a criminal complaint was filed by the Alameda County District Attorney's office.
The arrest followed a two-week investigation into theft and unlawful access on city-owned computers. Police said Anderson was observed deviating from normal accounting procedures by enrolling his own children in a recreation program. The investigation revealed that Anderson had unlawfully accessed a city computer database and misappropriated approximately $300 worth of services for his personal benefit.
The district attorney's criminal complaint charges Anderson with one count of unlawful computer access, a felony, and one count of embezzlement by a public employee.
