ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police and Probation Service companies are investigating a report that a monitor was taking money from probationers to falsify their community service time sheets.

Easter Seals officials noticed that several probationers, sentenced to community service for non-violent misdemeanors, came in asking for a former employee. Easter Seals officials suspect that former employee, who was fired for non-related reasons, was taking money from probationers in exchange for falsifying their service time sheets.  They reported those suspicions to Police.

Easter Seals uses the probationers for volunteer service jobs like making boxes.

Investigations by Albany Police and at least one of the Probation Service Companies are underway, but no arrests have been made.
