NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - The district attorney’s office has obtained several search warrants for the computers, home office and financial records relating to a western Pennsylvania township secretary who was fired last month.

That man, Brian Tanner, was fired as secretary/treasurer of Shenango Township in Lawrence County last month. The township is about 45 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

Tanner hasn’t been charged with a crime, and doesn’t have a listed home phone.

But the New Castle News (https://bit.ly/1lOMaJC ) reports that Tanner was fired after an audit determined he wrote more than 200 checks worth more than $453,000 to himself and a township auditor from 2011 to 2013.

Some of the search warrants seek records from township credit cards and bank accounts in Tanner’s name. Another warrant seeks to search a computer and memory items seized from Tanner’s home last month.
