Fair treasurer arrested



The Alpena County Fair seems to have hit a rough patch. First, many people were dissatisfied with the quality and amount of rides and now one of their own has been arrested on embezzlement charges.  The Alpena County Sheriff’s Office arrested Bradley Avery on Friday.  The sheriff’s office received a complaint of embezzlement from the Alpena County Fair Board in  February.  The fair board suspected the Treasurer, Bradley Avery, of embezzling money from the organization over a span of three years. After review by the Alpena County Prosecutor, a six count felony warrant was issued for the arrest of Bradley Avery.
