Lomotey is facing one count of felony embezzlement by a government official, and is being held at the Alexandria jail on $5,000 bond.

Police would not say how much they think Lomotey took, or during what time period.

“It was a little bit here and a little bit there during his shifts,” said Jody Donaldson, a spokesman for Alexandria police.

Lomotey, who worked for the city for more than 4 years, was placed on administrative leave without pay.

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities has begun an administrative inquiry, and is reviewing the city’s cash handling procedures for recreation centers.
