A report from the Arizona State Board of Technical Registration to the Arizona Auditor General has resulted in an indictment of an employee of the Board.

Travis Holbrook, former administrative services officer, was charged by a State Grand Jury with 6 felony counts related to fraudulent schemes and computer tampering.

The Arizona Auditor General’s fraud investigation discovered that from November through December 2017, Holbrook “may have embezzled $1,008 of cash payments Board customers made for their licensure and renewal fees.”

According to the Auditor General’s Office, Holbrook failed to deposit these payments and manipulated deposit-related information in the Board’s accounting software to conceal his actions.

The Auditor General submitted the report to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, which on July 29, 2019, presented evidence to the State Grand Jury.
