A Scott utility clerk accused of malfeasance in office is out on bond.

Montez Prejean allegedly stole money from the city.

“Through our annual audit report we found that money was missing,” said Scott Mayor Purvis Morrison. “More than $2,500 was missing. We turned this over to state police, and they investigated. She admitted to the theft, and they booked her. We have terminated her from the City of Scott.”

Prejean was employed for about 15 years with the city.

The audit was presented to the council last week, and that’s when the discovery was made.

The investigation is still ongoing.
