An employee of the city’s recreation center for the past four years, May used a point of sale application on his mobile device to take payments from the center’s customers, then transferred the funds into his bank account, Piedmont police Capt. Chris Monahan said.
Police began investigating May after other employees discovered unusual transactions while reviewing financial records, leading them to contact authorities, Monahan said.
May’s job title was “pool clerk” at the recreation department, which hosts swim classes, sports for youth and other programs.
The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has charged May with one count of embezzlement and two counts of grand theft. He is currently out on bail.
