Under fire from Baltimore-area bus riders, business leaders, politicians, parents and advocates, the Hogan administration on Wednesday canceled its proposal to slash MTA bus service in the Baltimore region next year in response to falling revenues due to the coronavirus.
Yute Commuter Service is suing its former business manager for allegedly embezzling company funds to pay for personal expenses, pay raises, and bonuses.
Wade Renfro co-ownes Yute Commuter Service, and first spotted unusual spending on the company credit card in June 2020, according to attorney Myron Angstman. Angstman is representing Yute in the lawsuit against former Yute business manager Nathan McCabe. McCabe also managed another Bethel business for Renfo: Riverside Apartments.
Renfro confronted McCabe about the charges while McCabe was in Anchorage at the time. By the end of the month, McCabe resigned from his position as business manager.
The complaint, filed Sept. 22, alleges that McCabe used company bank accounts and credit cards for personal expenses, such as paying his rent and giving himself pay raises, bonuses, and reimbursements, as well as inflating the compensation of another employee.
