Coldwater Clerk Sentenced for Wire Fraud


COLDWATER, MS (Ben Caxton) — A former City Clerk for the Town of Coldwater has been sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for Wire Fraud. George Nangah will serve the 21-month prison term consecutive to any state court term of imprisonment imposed by Tate County Circuit Court and was ordered to pay over $216,000 in restitution to the Town of Coldwater. From 2014 to 2017 as town clerk Nangah used an unauthorized municipal debit card to buy gift cards for airline tickets, hotels, and retail stores, none of which were used for the benefit of Coldwater. Nangah also used a charge account in the town’s name at Best Buy to buy electronic equipment and gift cards for his personal use and paid himself and one other person from Coldwater’s Clearing and General Fund bank accounts. The case was investigated by both the State Auditor and the FBI.
