Lincoln police arrested a former fraternity president and treasurer on suspicion of embezzling from Delta Tau Delta accounts.

Cody Brown, 23, was arrested Thursday.

According to a search warrant served May 21, UNL Chapter Adviser Alexander Wolf noticed multiple suspicious transactions in the fraternity's general account between January 2007 and June 2008 while preparing yearly tax returns.

Police say receipts, signatures and bank records indicate Brown used Delta Tau Delta money to buy more than $1,500 in goods and services from clothing stores, bars and restaurants for his personal use.

In addition, they say, he made cash withdrawals with the ATM card assigned to him every month between February 2007 and July 2008.

Wolf told police cash withdrawals from the fraternity account are very unusual.

Police seized withdrawal, transfer and deposit information; statement; and a copy of Brown's signature card in the search.
