Bethel Family Clinic reports stolen airline miles to police
BETHEL, Alaska (AP) — The Bethel Family Clinic says that 1 million Alaska Airlines miles have been taken from the clinic’s corporate credit card.
KYUK-AM reports that the clinic’s board members reported the lost miles to the Bethel Police Department on March 30.
Police Chief Burke Waldron says the miles accrued on the card were found to have been diverted to a private, personal mileage account.
Waldron would not comment on whether police have any suspects in the case, adding that their investigation is in its early stages.
Executive Director LaTesia Guinn unexpectedly resigned from the clinic last week. Bethel Police went to her home Friday and were referred to her attorney, Jim Valcarce.
KYUK-AM reports Valcarce declined its request for comment.
