PROBEMore than $30,000 in cash was reportedly seized from fired budget analyst Diane Richards last month, when a criminal investigation began involving her alleged theft of more than $1.1-million from the City of Kingman. City Attorney Carl Cooper said federal authorities seized the money and that it’s not clear at what point the cash might be subject to  forfeiture proceedings, nor to whom, in particular.

The City hopes to recoup part of the loss frm insurance coverage and there’s talk of the possibility of taking the fired auditing firm to task as well.
