It is a Myeon office and administrative welfare center in Hoengseong-gun, Gangwon-do.

A 40-year-old accountant has been involved in the center budget since last July.

It was the cost of remodeling a nearby welfare center and public funds, but the stolen money was over 400 million won 35 times over four months.

The trick was simple.

After posting a forged official notice with electronic approval, when the head of the office and the head of the department in charge were away for consultation or training, they secretly went to the computer to pay.

[행정복지센터 직원 : 그게(공금 횡령이) 한 두건이 아니라 여러 건이 있는 것으로…. 원래는 근무상 자리를 비우면 컴퓨터 잠그고 해야 하는데 그 와중에 잠깐 자리를 비울 때 같은 경우는….]

The crime of Mr. A was discovered only after the company representative, who did not receive the construction payment, filed a complaint and checked the expenditure details and the balance in the bankbook.

The stolen money was traded in futures stocks, which turned out to be mostly wasted.

[횡성군 관계자 : (본인은 선물 투자, 주식 투자를 했다고 이렇게 얘기를 하는 거예요?) 네. 그렇게 조사는 그렇게 됐어요. 근데 이게 (탕진 여부는) 남의 계좌를 들여다보고 할 수 있는 게 없으니까.]

Hoengseong-gun, as well as Mr. A, took responsibility for management and supervision, and dismissed the head of the township and the head of the department in charge.

After that, as soon as the audit by the Board of Audit and Inspection is complete, we plan to report Mr. A to the police.
