AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A young man who was hired as a deputy township treasurer in Washtenaw County despite no experience has been charged with embezzlement.

Brendan Humeniak, who’s in his early 20s, was charged Thursday with embezzling more than $50 from Augusta Township. A more detailed amount wasn’t disclosed. He was arraigned and released on bond. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney to reach for comment.

The attorney general’s office says state police began investigating when residents got overdue tax notices.

The Ann Arbor News (https://bit.ly/1PX9bM5 ) says Humeniak was appointed deputy treasurer in 2012 by his grandmother, Lynda Dew, who is Augusta Township’s treasurer. The newspaper says he told officials at the time that he had a high school diploma but no financial experience.
