In January 2011, the Investigative Services Branch (ISB) was contacted by members of the board of directors of the Grand Canyon Recreation Center, a not-for-profit organization operating within the confines of the park. They asked ISB to look into the possibility that the former manager of the recreation center used center funds for personal use over a period of two years. During the investigation, two federal search warrants were served and a number of items purchased with the center’s funds were recovered. The amount of the theft was in excess of $40,000. On October 2nd, the former manager was charged in US District Court for the District of Arizona with theft and access device fraud. Both charges are felonies.
