Hotel executive charged with embezzlement

Among many things, he turned in duplicate expense accounts

Kevin Kelso, former director of finance at the Westin San Diego hotel, was arraigned yesterday (Aug. 28) on charges of embezzling more than $500,000 from the Westin in the years 2010-2012.

Among many techniques, Kelso allegedly submitted duplicate expense accounts and took advantage of the hotel's change order process -- converting large denomination currency into smaller bills for customers.

A money hungry, unethical and thieving Hotel executive? Who would've thought? I'll bet he doesn't spend a day in jail.

FatCatSegat: No way to make a judgment on that because he has only been charged. Best, Don Bauder
