Retired clerk suspected of major theft

Kootenai County’s former chief deputy clerk is suspected of embezzling $138,905 over a 10-year period ending in October, a Coeur d’Alene Police Department spokesman said this morning.

Sandy Martinson, 62, has not been charged or arrested, said Sgt. Christie Wood with the Coeur d’Alene Police.

However, Wood said, a charging decision is pending with the Bonner County prosecutor’s office, which is handling the case because Martinson worked for Kootenai County.
