The former treasurer of both the Wellington Napoleon Fire Protection District and Special Road District pleaded guilty in federal court to a fraud scheme in which he embezzled more than $1.5 million from the two districts. Leland Ray Kolkmeyer, 58, of Wellington, MO, waived his right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Gary A. Fenner to a federal information that charges him with two counts of mail fraud. Kolkmeyer was appointed as treasurer of the road district in 1996. Kolkmeyer was first elected treasurer of the fire district in 1997. He resigned from both positions on Feb. 25, 2013. The offices of both the fire district and the road district are located in Wellington.
