Gypsum: Ex-town employee allegedly admits theft
Gypsum, CO Colorado
GYPSUM, Colorado –Danielle Mondlak, a former town of Gypsum employee, last week allegedly admitted to deputies she stole $1,520 from the town to pay her bills, according to Eagle County Court records.
Mondlak was contacted by deputies after Gypsum Town Manager Jeff Shroll reported money had been stolen from the town earlier this month.
According to court records, the town realized money was missing when a woman requested her deposit back from a building permit she had received. The woman provided a receipt with Danielle Mondlak’s signature on it. However, the town showed no transaction of the woman’s deposit, according to a police report.
The woman told Gypsum staff members that on Nov. 21, she went to the building department and gave a blonde female, who sat behind the counter, her deposit in cash, the police report said.
Mondlak was employed by the town of Gypsum’s building department and was responsible for taking in money for building permits. Mondlak worked for the town for about 10 months and was terminated for an unrelated reason in early May, said Shroll.
“New measures have now been put in place.” Shroll said.
The building department is now required to bring a deposit sheet and cash to the finance department daily to make sure they coincide.
