Second Person Arrested For Embezzling Funds From Phoenix Girl Scouts

A second person has been arrested in a case in which $8,000 was embezzled from Phoenix Girl Scout troop 534.

Scottsdale police spokesman Sergeant Mark Clark says cops began to investigate after troop members noticed missing funds in April. Former troop leader Trisha Proud, 29 -- also a mother of one of the members -- was arrested earlier this month on charges of fraud and theft.

A second suspect, Perry Bush, 26, was arrested Wednesday, also on theft and fraud scheme charges, after police discovered an ATM card belonging to one of the victims in his possession. Bush is also wanted in Glendale and Phoenix for alleged theft and fraud.
