Investigators arrested San Bernardino County Assistant Assessor Adam Aleman on Monday, charging him with six felony counts that include destroying public records, vandalism and offering forged or false documents as evidence, according to the county district attorney's office. Authorities said Aleman, 25, prepared false evidence to submit to a grand jury and destroyed the hard drive of a laptop computer issued to County Assessor Bill Postmus. Deputy Dist. Atty. John Goritz said Aleman substituted one person's name for another's in the minutes of a meeting, falsifying the record to make it look as if that person had done work that was actually done by someone else.
