Former South Tucson finance supervisor Sylvia Salomon faces six counts of theft by control related to unauthorized use of a city-issued credit card.

The Pima County Attorney’s Office filed a complaint listing the misdemeanor charges on May 20.

South Tucson investigators found that Salomon had made six purchases totaling about $770 without approval, the police report showed.

The purchases included a Samsung Galaxy S4 and an Otterbox case for personal use, a dozen champagne flutes, a night at a Hyatt hotel in Phoenix and brake pads, drums and rotors for her son’s Chevy Impala, the report showed.

The theft charges stem from an investigation into more than $70,000 in cash receipts that went missing before being deposited into the city’s bank accounts.

The investigation continues, City Manager Luis Gonzales said Friday.

Salomon left the city in March after being moved to another department and receiving discipline of a week without pay, Gonzales said.

The investigation began informally in February but shifted to a formal investigation in March.

Salomon's arraignment has been set for June 10.

She could not immediately be reached.
