ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) –
An oil company in Alaska has sued a former employee, an Anchorage police officer and others alleging they embezzled more than $7 million.
Alaska Public Media reported that ConocoPhillips lawyers filed the lawsuit against former senior drilling and wells planner Forrest Wright, Officer Nathan Keays and close relatives.
The claim says Wright created fake contracting firms and submitted fraudulent invoices to steal at least $7.2 million and move the money to a company he started in Nevada.
