A Pima County Grand Jury has indicted a former account services manager for the Pima County Joint Technical Education District (JTED), Tyler Jeffrey Buntrock. Buntrock allegedly embezzled public monies.

Buntrock is facing six felony counts of Violation of Duties of a Custodian of Public Monies.

As a Pima JTED employee, Buntrock is accused of receiving money collected from JTED students and parents, recording the money in the accounting system, and depositing the money at the bank. The indictment alleges that between March and August 2016, Buntrock took for himself over $12,000 from the cash that he received, rather than deposit the money into the JTED’s bank account, according to the Arizona Auditor General’s Office.
