But Lt. James Smiley of DPS
said he believes the figure may be
closer to the $1,000-plus range.
Smiley said in these types of
crimes it is often difficult to pinpoint
the exact amount of misused funds,
due to the discrepancy between what
is taken and what is returned when

is in progress. It is therefore simpler

Preliminary examinations of
Buford and McCree are scheduled
for Feb. 24.
Smiley said he believes the
University will fire the two employ-
ees for their activities.
Employees at the School of
Pharmacy and the Medical School
implied that the two women were no
longer working in these departments.
However, neitherBuford nor
McCree were available for
Smiley said the cooperation be-
tween the University Audits
Department and DPS has proven es-
pecially effective in combatting this
type of white-collar crime.
Internal Audit Manager Mike
Thompson of the University Audits
Department said the normal proce-

cases is to examine account records,
based on suspicion or an allegation
"First we look at the accounting
records involved and see if the ap-
parent wrongdoing is supported by
the record. If there is evidence of
such, we contact DPS," Thompson
"Our main focus is to determine
if controls are built into the account-
ing system to prevent these type of
crimes from occurring. We make
recommendations to strengthen
these weaknesses, and DPS prose-
cutes the crime," he added.
