FIRE IN SANTA YNEZ

The suspects in a large-scale fraud and embezzlement case involving the misappropriation of $1.7 million of Santa Barbara County funds were arraigned on Monday.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley filed a 27-page count complaint against the nine suspects: Lynn Gay Hogan, Wendy Sue Puchli, Michelle Louise Lavin, Richard Edward Kaplinski, Jr., Vincent Ray Anzivino, Michael Elliott, Christina Huffman, Leanna Yumiko Harada, and Michael Edward Anzivino.

Hogan, a county public works accountant, is accused of misappropriation of public funds, forgery and conspiracy to commit a crime. The complaint alleges that Hogan issued fake vendor numbers in order to be issued refund checks made out to the eight other defendants. The complaint also alleges that Hogan deposited the illegally obtained funds into a bank account belonging to Tri-Valley Youth Football Conference.

The additional defendants are accused of depositing the illegally obtained funds into their personal bank accounts.

The complaint alleges that Hogan created the false vendors and obtained refund checks for over nine years between May 2008 and July 2017.

The fire scorched approximately 139 acres. All forward progress of the fire was stopped by firefighters just before 3 p.m., according to Santa Barbara County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni. Crews stayed on scene putting out hot spots.

There were no injuries but a Gainey winery processing facility was threatened at the peak of the fire. However, crews were able to prevent any damage to that processing facility.

Personnel from Los Padres Forest Service assisted county firefighters. Crews mounted an aggressive attack on the fire with the addition of two helicopters and two air tankers making drops on the flames.

All inbound and outbound aircraft were temporarily stopped due to the fire, according to emergency traffic radio.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

CAMARILLO

A Ventura man will spend six months in jail for his part in causing a 2014 explosion at Santa Clara Waste Water Company in Santa Paula.

Kenneth Douglas Griffin, Jr., 22, of Ventura will also be placed on probation for three years after he was sentenced in Ventura County District Court on Thursday.

Griffin was an on-site supervisor at Santa Clara Waste Water Company when the explosion happened. Multiple employees and first responders were injured by the explosion or from toxic gas at the facility.

Griffin was involved in moving chemicals from the facility to an off-site storage lot to avoid enforcement efforts by the Ventura County Environmental Health Division. Griffin also failed to warn employees of the presence of a hazardous material known as sodium chlorite. He also failed to provide sufficient warning regarding chemicals that were mislabeled or entirely unlabeled at the facility.

Griffin will begin his jail sentence on October 13. He will also be forced to pay victim restitution, the amount of which will be determined at a later date.

He is also prohibited from supervising over employees handling hazardous materials while on probation.
