A Detroit man has been charged in the theft of nearly $1 million in money intended for employee prescription drug coverage in the city of River Rouge.
Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox says in a release that 45-year-old Adam Korejsza was arraigned Friday in River Rouge on racketeering, embezzlement and tax evasion charges. Bond was set at $1 million.
His arrest follows a joint investigation by Cox's office and the state police.
Between January 2007 and September 2008 more than $50,000 per month was paid from insurance premiums. Cox says Korejsza was under contract to manage the program.
A preliminary examination has been set for Nov. 13.
The Associated Press could not determine Friday afternoon if Korejsza had an attorney.
