Authorities say the former executive director of the Verde Valley Homeless Coalition has been arrested for allegedly embezzling thousands of dollars from the organization.

Cottonwood police say 48-year-old Matthew Ryan Martin was taken into custody late last week after more than a month of investigating discrepancies in the coalition’s financial statements. Police say an investigation found that Martin allegedly embezzled around $14,000 between July and August of 2020.  Martin allegedly used a debit card for the Verde Valley Homeless Coalition that he was given for business purposes and withdrew money.
