On Aug. 24, police met with district management about the case, which was developed during a review of purchase invoices at the district’s accounting office.

Brewer, who was a buyer with the district’s bus division in San Rafael, had embezzled about $98,000, according to police. He is no longer employed by the district.

He was arrested today and booked into Marin County jail.
