A Bingo Palace cashier is accused of stealing $136,000 from the North Dakota Association for the Disabled gaming site over the past three years, according to Grand Forks police.

Heath Volk, 33, Grand Forks, turned himself in to authorities this morning, according to Grand Forks Police Det. Mike Flannery.

The alleged theft was uncovered when Bingo Palace officials "realized they had a problem with some missing money and started an audit," Flannery said.

The police department got involved in December. The audit was complete in January, Flannery said. The police investigation showed that about $136,000 was taken from the organization over a three-year period.

Volk was identified as the only suspect. He faces a Class B felony theft charge.

Winners at the gaming site were paid out correctly, the monetary losses didn't impact winnings, according to Flannery.
