Former Woodruff Arts employee admits embezzling

ATLANTA (AP) - A former employee of the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $1 million.

Ralph Clark entered a guilty plea Tuesday in federal court in Atlanta.

Prosecutors say Clark worked at the Woodruff Arts Center as an HVAC mechanic from October 2004 until he was fired in October of last year. He was promoted to director of facilities, and his duties included maintaining the center's infrastructure.

He was authorized to approve vendor contracts up to $50,000. Prosecutors say he stole more than $1.1 million from the center between November 2005 and October 2012.

The center began an internal audit after a supervisor raised questions about invoices submitted by Clark. Prosecutors say Clark admitted to the embezzlement when presented with the findings of the internal investigation.
