New embezzlement charges for Montezuma County ex-undersheriff

CORTEZ, Colo. - A Montezuma County grand jury has indicted former Undersheriff Robin Cronk on new charges alleging he used taxpayer money to purchase about $7,400 of personal items, including maintenance on personal vehicles.

The Cortez Journal reports the grand jury indicted Cronk on 17 embezzlement counts and a count of official misconduct. District Attorney Will Furse says Cronk was arrested in Arizona on Thursday in connection with the indictment.

In July, Cronk was arrested on charges of embezzlement and official misconduct following a Colorado Bureau of Investigation review of credit card purchases. An arraignment on those charges is scheduled for Tuesday. Furse wouldn't comment on how that case would be disposed.

Cronk resigned from the sheriff's office in June. His phone number is unlisted, and he couldn't be reached for comment.
