MADISON, W.Va. (AP) - Two West Virginia school system employees accused of purchasing various automotive-related items for personal and others’ benefit then directing their employers to pay for it have each pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports the two admitted to the charges Wednesday and must pay an amount of restitution to Boone County Schools that has yet to be determined.

Schools superintendent Jeff Huffman says David Bryan Jarrell and Tracy Harvey have been suspended without pay since February and the school board will now want to revisit their employment statuses. Harvey is a bus mechanic and Jarrell is schools transportation director.

Boone prosecutor Keith Randolph says the amount embezzled is “in dispute,” but the investigation indicated close to $100,000.

Jarrell and Harvey are scheduled for sentencing Oct. 18.
