ESPANOLA, N.M. -- A former employee is the focus of New Mexico State Police's embezzlement investigation targeting a Children Youth and Families Department office in Espanola.

KOB has learned the person at the center of the probe is Polly Arzola, a supervisor who worked with foster families. Arzola had been with CYFD for 15 years and was named "employee of the month" back in 2010.

CYFD fired her earlier this month. State police have not yet presented their findings to the district attorney's office.
