ISLE OF WIGHT—No one will be charged after an investigation for alleged embezzlement within Isle of Wight County Schools.

“I have reviewed the report, discussed the matter with investigators and met with school personnel,” Commonwealth Attorney Wayne Farmer said Friday. “Based on all information received, it does not appear that criminal charges are appropriate.”

He said this appears to be a school board policy violation, and added the people in the investigation are no longer working for school system.

The issue concerned the disposal of old computer equipment stored away and unused in the schools.
