The Reno Gazette Journal is reporting that a former treasurer of the Panther Valley Water Users Association is under investigation of selling for personal profit water rights that the association didn’t even own, among other things.
Investigators said the treasurer, Robert Klein, may have embezzled $2 million
One investigator was quoted as saying, “Mr. Klein has fled the area and this is an ongoing case. Once there’s a warrant, we’ll seek him out then. It’s a complicated case. This guy had carte blanche for eight years.” [Reno (NV) Gazette-Journal, December 21]
