A Wyoming fire chief and his wife have been arrested and charged with embezzling funds from the fire department. Green River Fire Department Chief Michael Nomis, 50, and his wife, Stephanie Nomis, 46, were arrested today following a lengthy investigation by the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the indictment handed down last Friday, investigators believed at least $125,000 from the several accounts associated with the Green River Fire Department Foundation was missing. Some of the funds reportedly have been accounted for. Investigators combed the fire department’s books for transactions between August 2016 and January 2020.
Chief Nomis and Mrs. Nomis are facing felony theft charges. More on the story.
