D.A. reviewing allegations Pico Rivera officials misused city-issued credit cards
The District Attorney's Office is probing allegations that the city's two assistant managers and former city manager misused city-issued credit cards.
The D.A.'s Office is reviewing a complaint that former City Manager Chuck Fuentes and assistant city managers Jeff Prang and Debbie Lopez used city credit cards for expenses unrelated to city business, said Deputy D.A. Sandi Roth.
"There's an allegation of misuse of the city-issued credit cards for non-city related purposes," Roth said. "It's just an allegation at this point."
