Consultant accused of overbilling city for equipment

SCRIBNER, Neb. (AP) _ A computer consultant has been accused of overbilling for services and providing the city of Scribner with cheaper computer equipment than ordered.

The Norfolk Daily News reports that 55-year-old Merlyn “Lee” Cavner Jr. is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 15 on a felony
theft charge. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday from The Associated Press.

A court document says the city paid Cavner $7,425 for equipment and $1,900 for a setup fee. But the document says a city employee discovered the equipment delivered later was not what the city paid for and was far cheaper. The document says the city lost $4,500 to $5,000 on the transactions.
