FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Northern Arizona University police are investigating
payments that the university’s post office made to a security company owned by
the university’s now-retired postmaster.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports that Ed Talley retired
earlier this year shortly after the investigation began.
Officials say the investigation began when a new accounting software program
spotted suspicious payments for security.
University spokesman Tom Bauer says investigators are trying to determine how
much money was paid to the security company and how long payments were made.
Talley and his attorney declined comment. Talley had run the school’s post
office since 1977.
