Embezzlment in Bernalillo County Clerks Office?

Veritas New Mexico - A Bernalillo County Clerk employee is accused of stealing nearly $23,000 dollars from the government office where he works in downtown Albuquerque. Clifford Valencia, 25, was arrested on Thursday afternoon and booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on embezzlement charges just after 8pm. County Clerk Maggie Toulouse-Oliver told Veritas New Mexico that Valencia was assigned to the office’s Recording and Filing Department. He allegedly figured out a way to charge customers, including the City of Albuquerque, and other government agencies, full price for their various filings, but then pocket a large portion any payments made in cash. “Even with the quality control process we have in place there was no way to know this was happening,” Toulouse-Oliver said. “He found a loophole in the software that our vendor didn’t even know existed.” An annual audit also did not detect the scheme.
