Official Suspended Over Alleged Missing Funds

May 04, 2000

VENTURA COUNTY — The fiscal operations manager of the Ventura Regional Sanitation District has been suspended from her job while investigators look into the alleged disappearance of more than $200,000, district officials said.

Bill Smith, the district's general manager, said he suspended Carol Ann Davenport last Friday.

Davenport, a 19-year employee, has met with the Ventura County district attorney's office, according to sources close to the investigation. However, she has not been arrested and no charges have been filed, officials said.

A district attorney's investigator refused to discuss the case. Smith said, "It's an allegation, technically, at this point. She's innocent until proven guilty."

Attempts to reach Davenport were unsuccessful.

The district contracts with eight of Ventura County's 10 cities to store trash at the Toland Road Landfill.
