BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) – Nine city employees in Bartlesville are facing embezzlement charges for allegedly stealing materials and selling them.

City Manager Ed Gordon said Thursday the workers are accused of taking old water meters and selling brass and copper from them for scrap.

The city began looking into the matter after Gordon received a complaint that employees were salvaging city-owned metal while on the clock.

The Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reports workers allegedly took metal from old water meters that were being replaced. The city started replacing the meters last year.
