Richard C. Bell 2d was an accounting clerk in the city Sheriff's Office, paid $42,000 a year to help distribute the proceeds when people lost their homes at sheriff's sales because of unpaid mortgages or taxes. But he had one key role in the sheriff's operations. Whenever a bank had a question about a check issued by the Sheriff's Office, Bell took the call. With that position and some manipulation of the sheriff's computerized check-writing system, Bell developed a bogus-check scam that cost the Sheriff's Office nearly $420,000 from 2007 into 2010.
