CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - An FBI audit of a former St. Louis County health administrator’s fraudulent spending shows that the official spent public money on landscaping, kennels, child care, groceries and magazine subscriptions.

Ed Mueth used an alias and phony invoices to collect millions of dollars during a six-year scheme to sell and lease laptop computers to the county. He committed suicide when other county officials uncovered the embezzlement scheme in September 2013.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1sNf8lx ) reports that the FBI responded to a judge’s ruling and released its audit Monday to the ACLU of Missouri. The FBI review came at the request of St. Louis County police. The county had previously refused to release the report, contending that the FBI asked it to not disclose the audit details.
