$2.5 Million Embezzled in Lander
A 54-year-old former financial manager has pleaded not guilty to charges of embezzling more than $2.5 million. Gerald "Gary" Emil Anderson Jr. entered the pleas Wednesday in District Court in Lander. Anderson is charged with four counts of felony larceny and three counts of obtaining goods by false pretenses. Sublette County District Judge Marvin L. Tyler did not immediately set a jury trial date for Anderson. Prosecutors charge that Anderson embezzled money from Star-Tech Inc. and Precision Analysis in Riverton from 2000 through 2010. They contend he took the money for himself and relatives. Prosecutors dismissed two previous counts of conspiracy to commit felony larceny in July.
