FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A former postal services manager at Northern Arizona University is accused of embezzling nearly $355,000 from the school over a span of 15 ½ years.

The Arizona Auditor General’s Office says Edwin Talley allegedly used a fraud scheme to embezzle public monies from NAU from July 1997 through January 2013.

The monies came from university revenues that consisted primarily of state appropriations and students’ tuition and fee payments.

A Coconino County grand jury indicted Talley last week on six felony counts related to theft, fraudulent schemes, misuse of public monies and money laundering.

Authorities say NAU issued 245 checks and made 12 purchasing card payments totaling $354,902 to two fictitious vendors Talley created.

Talley was fired by NAU in January 2013.

It was unclear Monday if Talley has a lawyer.
