Shocking Details Contained in Unsealed Search Warrant for Stockton Board President’s Home
Two weeks ago, San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Deputies raided the home of Stockton Unified School Board President AngelAnn Flores. Now — thanks to the unsealing of the search warrant — we now know what they were looking for, what they took, and why.
Alleged Misappropriation of School Funds
“The search — and the underlying investigation detailed in the newly-unsealed documents — targeted alleged misuse of a school district credit card by Board President AngelAnn Flores, and other alleged misconduct,” the Stockton Record reports.
“They said they were looking for evidence of stealing public money, the warrant shows, as well as failure to produce government documents, witness intimidation, and Brown Act violations.”
Deputies seized cell phones, an iPad, a laptop and various documents. They got access to Flores’ social media accounts and confiscated a USB drive containing credit card information from her office.
Whistleblowers Sounded the Alarm
According to the Record, it was former SUSD interim superintendent Traci Miller who called sheriff’s deputies to report “issues of concern” involving Flores. Information was also provided by Stockton Unified’s chief business official Joann Juarez, who has publicly spoken out against Flores.
Miller claims that Flores tried to intimidate her into staying silent about things she had seen or heard. Meanwhile, Miller says there were multiple violations of the Brown Act going on.
There must have been other people reporting concerns as well. The sheriff has said “several whistleblowers within SUSD” have approached his department about potential wrongdoing.
Flores has denied the allegations and has not yet been charged with any crime.
