JACKSON, MS -- According to the Mississippi State Auditor's office Jay Paul Gumm, former State Senator for Southern Oklahoma, and former Executive Director of the Stone County Economic Development Partnership, was arrested by Special Agents and Stone County Sheriff's Deputies on Friday, August 16, for embezzlement.

As Executive Director of the Stone County Economic Development Partnership, Jay Paul Gumm embezzled over $24,000.00.

The various instances of embezzlement included Gumm depositing $11,750.00 into his personal account; fraudulently withholding a $2,000.00 personal check that was shown as deposited; depositing a $500.00 fraudulent check into his personal account from a Christmas party; and depositing an $8,060.00 amount from six checks with forged signatures; and other money.

"We appreciate the partnership our office has with the Stone County Sheriff's Office working this case," said State Auditor Stacey Pickering. "This is again another example of law enforcement agencies working together effectively to hold those in management positions accountable to the taxpayers of Mississippi."

Gumm, age 50 of Wiggins, was released from the Stone County Jail on Saturday, August 17, on a $20,000.00 bond.
