A former staff member at Iowa State University is facing theft charges. The I.S.U. Police and Iowa Attorney General’s Office charged Pamela Reinig, of Elkader, with two felonies, including first-degree theft, and ongoing criminal conduct.
In December of 2007, investigators got a tip Reinig misappropriated university funds for personal financial gain. At the time, she was director of I-S-U’s Engineering Communications and Marketing Department. Documents and computer gear were seized from Reinig’s home and office, along with bank records.
An audit found she’d deposited more than $30,000 from Iowa State into her personal bank account over three years.
