Alaska man sought in $100,000 theft from nonprofit

Posted: Tuesday, July 07, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Police are searching for an Anchorage man suspected of stealing more than $100,000 from the nonprofit Alaska Marine Conservation Council.

Anchorage police Lt. Dave Parker says it's believed 36-year-old Travis Robinson committed the crimes against his former employer by using company credit cards, company accounts and false reimbursements.

The thefts forced the nonprofit to put all paid employees on furlough, and several workers lost their jobs.

Robinson is wanted on an arrest warrant that includes the charges of theft, scheme to defraud, fraudulent use of an access device and tampering with evidence.
