SWEETWATER COUNTY, Wyo. \u2014 A months-long investigation into the suspected embezzlement of donated funds from the City of Green River Fire Department (GRFD) Foundation culminated today with the arrests of Green River Fire Department Chief Michael Nomis, 50, and his wife, Stephanie Nomis, 46.\r\n\r\nSheriff\u2019s detectives served search warrants back in November to obtain bank records associated with the GRFD Foundation. In January of this year, detectives served additional search warrants at Green River City Hall and GRFD for corresponding and related financial records.\r\n\r\nAccording to court documents, a comparison of bank statements with related financial records over the time period of August 2016 through January 2020 reveals a total of at least $125,000 from the three foundation accounts and the social fund that is either missing (and now accounted for through the course of investigation) or that is still unaccounted for (and remains under investigation).\r\n\r\nOn Friday, Sweetwater County Circuit Court Judge Craig Jones issued bench warrants for Michael and Stephanie Nomis\u2019 arrests. Earlier this morning, sheriff\u2019s detectives, assisted by special agents from the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation\u2019s Southwest Enforcement Team, served the bench warrants, arresting Michael and Stephanie Nomis separately and without incident.\r\n\r\nMichael Nomis is charged with felony theft and wrongful appropriation of public property. Stephanie Nomis is charged with felony theft. In Wyoming, theft of $1,000 or more is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 10 years, a fine of not more than $10,000 or both; wrongful appropriate of public property is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year, a fine of not more than $1,000 or both.\r\n\r\nAt the time of this release, both remain in custody without bond at Sweetwater County Detention Center.
