RAW: Former Bridgeport public utilities district manager arrested on suspicion of embezzlement

In early April, the District Attorney’s Office was alerted to an allegation of misappropriation of funds from the Bridgeport Public Utility District.

The District Attorney’s Office opened an investigation which revealed that former General Manager Cheryl Goode issued herself numerous unsubstantiated payments.

An arrest warrant charging misappropriation of public funds was sought, and on May 17, Goode turned herself in at the Mono County Jail.

Goode posted the bail amount of $25,000.00 and is due to appear in the Superior Court, County of Mono, on June 5, to face charges of misappropriation of public funds.
