On Thursday, August 2, 2018, former Cobb-Douglas Community Service Board (CSB) employee, Darious Jordan was indicted on ten counts of Unauthorized Use of a Financial Transactions Card in the Superior Court of Cobb County.

From May 5, 2017 and October 2, 2017, Jordan utilized his State-issued fuel card to put gasoline in private vehicles.  To avoid detection, Jordan entered fictitious data into the system utilized to capture and analyze fuel spending. Through his fraudulent activity, Jordan misappropriated as much as $4,691.70 in fuel.

On top of restitution to be paid back to the State, Jordan faces a penalty of 1-3 years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.

This case was initially referred to the Office of the State Inspector General (OIG) by the Georgia Department of Administrative Services’ Office of Fleet Management.  The case was investigated by Investigator Jonelle Vernon with the OIG.  Assistant Attorney General Sandra Bailey is prosecuting the case.
